Surface Process Modeling Using CMT Course

Project description

CSDMS Icon (128) 3D Reflection.png This course aims to familiarize earth sciences and engineering graduate students with a number of numerical surface process models and hydrological models available through the Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) and sets students up to use these tools for your own research purposes.

Objectives

The course involves both lectures and hands-on modeling and aims at:

  • Introduction to CSDMS and High Performance Computing.
  • Lectures on theory and applications of several models.
  • Simulations on the HPCC to explore:
    1. stand-alone simulations with HydroTrend and TopoFlow hydrological components
    2. a coupled hydrological-glaciological model, i.e. TopoFlow and Gc2d
    3. a coupled river-delta model, i.e. HydroTrend and CEM
