LECTURES FROM A HIRLAM TRAINING COURSE
This page contains lecture notes and related material from a
HIRLAM training course in Riga, 18-29 October, 1998. Lectures
were given about HIRLAM basic model equations,
numerical techniques, physical parametrizations, validation,
structure of the model code etc. The attendants got acquainted
with running of HIRLAM experiments and visualisation of the
results using a workstation model setup.
A report of the workshop was written.
The course material is published here in hope that it will be
useful for HIRLAM education and future courses. The material
is not specially cleaned up and may contain inaccuracies.
Notes may freely be used and improvements implemented.
The authors can be contacted by e-mail for further information.
