Course description:

Are you modelling yourself, planning to do a model experiment or usingthemodel output? Do you havesmallthefeeling,that there might be some aspects of your model you have not considered, but which might be important for your work? Or would you just like to learn more about the presentation of some interesting and important processes in different models? If yes (and maybe even if not), we have a course exactly for you!

The main motivation behind the modelling class is to learn

1)     How different processes are represented in different types of models

2)     Why and what do the different representations mean in terms of using the model and the output

The format of the course will be workshop-like, with lectures followed by discussion based on the lecture and assigned literature. We intend to coveranumber of interesting topics, both fromanoceanicandanatmospheric perspective. The first one andahalf days are reserved forlectures and discussions related to the different models andan introduction tothe hierarchy of models considered in this course and the fundamentals ofmodel design.Twhile the remainderstof the week will be spentdonselectedmorespecifictopicsmodelling issues, each of which is the model representation of a certain process. The underlying questions we will seek to answerfor eachprocessduring the topical partare

1)     On which scales to I have to consider which effects (and what happens if I don't)?

2)     How is the process treated in models of varying complexity?

The tentative outline is give below, the topics should be rather settled, while the their time slot (and length) may be changing. Lectures will be given by leading experts both from Norway and elsewhere.
