MET4750: Techniques for Earth System Modeling
This course is an introduction to computational techniques for simulation of geophysical fluids, including atmospheric flow and ocean currents. It enables students to understand the basic concepts and common techniques used in numerical modeling of geophysical fluids and to learn fundamentals of programming in Python and FORTRAN90, both of which are widely used in solid earth, atmospheric and oceanic modeling. Each student will complete homework assignments and a group programming project of a simple geophysical fluid problem during the semester.
