MUSICA Tutorial 2021

Nov. 12 to Apr. 8, 2022

9:00 – 11:00 am MDT

Main content

MUSICA (Multi-Scale Infrastructure for Chemistry and Aerosols) is a new community modeling infrastructure which will become a computationally feasible global modeling framework that allows for the simulation of large-scale atmospheric phenomena, while still resolving chemistry at emission and exposure relevant scales (down to ~4 km within the next 5 years). MUSICA will eventually replace and extend the current separate community chemistry modeling efforts at NCAR (e.g. WACCM, CAM-Chem, WRF-Chem), paralleling other activities at NCAR to streamline and unify model development.

We will be starting an online MUSICA Tutorial series on November 12, 2021, 9-11 am MST (16-18 UTC). We plan to have monthly sessions, including presentations and hands-on exercises. Presentations will be recorded for viewing at your convenience if you cannot attend the session. We will also hold "office hours" 1 or 2 times in between each session to allow participants to ask questions after spending some time working on their own on each topic.

The current schedule is (check back regularly for updates):
