St.Petersburg Summer School 2006
Nonhydrostatic dynamics and fine scale data assimilation
11-17.6.2006 Sanatorium Dunes, Sestroretsk
Summer school presentations (pdf files) are linked to the programme. Summer school excercises
and downloadable materials are found in course resources. SSS06 photo album contains selected
photos by Andres Luhamaa. A report of
SSS06 was written based on participants' evaluations.
A CD containing all material from this site + presentation ppt files,
excercise reports and all full resolution photos, will be available
upon request from the course organisers. Please send a message
containing your street address to kourzeneva, rshu.ru to obtain your
copy as soon as the CD will be ready.

P.S. Please find a report about SSS06 at p. 39 of the bulletin Bilten
6-2006 of the Croatian hydrometeorological service, written by the
Croatian participants (in Croatian).

The aim of the summer school is to give training on nonhydrostatic
dynamics and data assimilation techniques for people using and
developing fine-scale atmospheric models. Organisers or the summer
school come from HIRLAM and ALADIN communities but the course
perspective is broader than practical application of these models.
The course should provide an overview on
Introduction to the basic methods of fine-scale dynamics + numerics
and data-assimilation will be given, with their practical application
at an introductory level. The participants are expected to be at least
post-graduate/PhD level students starting to work or already working
with NWP models and familiar with basic dynamics and numerical
- what do we expect to gain with the use of nonhydrostatic models?
- basic ideas and methods of the nonhydrostatic NWP models
- role and methods of data assimilation in fine-scale NWP models
The venue of the summer school will be Sanatorium Dunes, situated at
the Gulf of Finland 40 km northwest from St.Peterburg. Please find the
registration form and practical information below.
