UM Training November 2016

We recently ran the first, this academic year, of our popular 3 day UM Introduction courses. The course was attended by researchers from around the UK, as well as 3 participants from the US.

For the first time the course focused entirely on running the UM through the Rose/cylc interface. Attendees worked through a series of exercises designed to help users become familiar with the UM software, including how to diagnose common problems. We also had 2 very interesting science talks from Carol Halliwell and Sylvia Bohnenstengel of the Met Office.

The course was very well received with everyone who responded to our request for feedback (11 out of 19 participants) rating the lectures, practicals and facilities good or excellent.

The next course will run 29-31 March 2017, with registration opening in January 2017. For more details see:
