Application to attend the CESM Polar Modeling Workshop, August 12-16, 2019 at the NCAR Mesa Lab in Boulder, CO
With funding from National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs, we are organizing a 1-week long CESM Polar Modeling Workshop August 12-16, 2019 in Boulder, Colorado at the National Center for Atmospheric Research Mesa Laboratory. The workshop will target ~20 early career (graduate student, postdoc, < 7 years since Ph.D.) polar scientists to attend. CESM Polar Modeling Workshop participants will gain hands-on experience planning, designing, executing, and analyzing earth system modeling experiments to understand a changing Polar climate system and to explore better methods to integrate models and observations. Participants will engage in advanced activities focused specifically on capacity building for using CESM in polar research (e.g., sea ice, land ice, atmosphere, ocean, land, paleoclimate).

The CESM Polar Modeling Workshop will follow directly from the Annual CESM Tutorial held August 5-9, 2019. Prospective participants who have not attended the CESM Tutorial should apply for both the CESM Tutorial and the CESM Polar Modeling workshop. Prospective participants who have previously attended the CESM Tutorial (or have equivalent experience) should apply for just the CESM Polar Modeling Workshop.

In order to apply for the workshop, please fill out this form and email the additional materials listed at the end of the form. Admitted participants will receive travel funding to cover air fare, lodging and per diem during the workshop. Please submit by March 8, 2019.
