NCL Workshop at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

The Arctic Region Supercomputing Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks will be hosting a free NCL Workshop the week of 11-15 March 2013. The workshop is open to all students and staff of UAF/ARSC.

Space is limited, so sign up soon! To sign up, fill out this survey:
You will receive an email confirmation once the survey is complete.

The workshop will consist of both lectures and hands-on labs. It is co-taught by Dennis Shea, an associate scientist at NCAR/NESL, and Mary Haley, a software engineer at NCAR/CISL. During the labs, students will be encouraged to download their own datasets of interest, and Dennis and Mary will help them write NCL scripts to analyze and/or visualize them.

The 2013 Alaska Weather Symposium will be held that same week, 12-13 March 2013. Stay tuned for details about the NCL workshop schedule: we will be working around the AWS dates.

General information about the NCL workshop

  • Schedule - tentative!

  • The NCL workshop will be held in the WRRB 009 Classroom at ARSC (map).

  • Students will be provided with a login to the Pacman supercomputer, if they don't already have one.

  • Starter NCL scripts for workshop.

  • If you can provide us with sample datasets that you work with before the workshop starts, then here's where you can ftp it:

        <log in as "anonymous">
        <Use email address as password>
        cd incoming
        put <your files>

    You can't list the contents of this directory, so email Mary (haley at ucar dot edu) and Dennis (shea at ucar dot edu) with the exact names of the files.
