01 June 2014 to 05 June 2014
The Weather Research and Forecast with Chemistry (WRF-Chem) Tutorial – Training Workshop for Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region will be held at ICIMOD headquarters in Kathmandu, Nepal, on 1 – 5 June 2014. The workshop will be sponsored by International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), Germany, within the framework of the project “Sustainable Atmosphere for the Kathmandu Valley” (SusKat). SusKat has been initiated by ICIMOD and IASS to conduct a comprehensive assessment of various aspects of air pollution in the Himalayas region, and in particular the Kathmandu Valley.
The Tutorial has been developed to meet the needs of the HKH region, and will be delivered by experts from National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) with high experiences on the WRF-Chem Tutorial. The workshop will focus on how to set-up and run WRF, in particular the WRF-Chem, over the South Asian – Himalaya domain. The event will be followed by the Second Annual Regional Atmospheric Science (SARAS) Workshop that brings together atmospheric scientists doing research in the region.
20 scientists selected by applications from HKH/South Asian countries, as well as within ICIMOD and partner institutes.
