Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Numerical modeling has become an important tool to better understand physical processes and to predict the behaviour of different systems in geosciences. In this lecture, you will learn the fundamentals of the Finite Difference method and how to write a Finite Difference code from scratch. The idea of this class is to provide an understanding of the method through a “learning-by-doing” approach. The course will contain both lectures and practical exercises, with an emphasis on exercises.

Goals:
- Gain an understanding of how numerical models can be applied in Geosciences
- Learn how to write a finite difference code from scratch
- Apply the code to a geoscientific problem

Assessment and permitted materials

You'll have to write your own code (based on your interest/scientific needs) at the end of the class.
