Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course provides an introduction to climate modeling, with a focus on the global climate model ICON. You will run ICON to study basic phenomena of climate dynamics.

At the end of the lecture part, you will be able to explain technical aspects of the ICON model, e.g., the model grid, dynamical core and physics parametrizations. You will also have developed an understanding of hierarchical climate modeling.

In the exercises, you will learn how to operate the ICON climate model. This can include changes to the model source code and boundary conditions. Possible model experiments include the climate response to a quadrupling of CO2, a climate with transparent clouds, and an Eyeball Earth.

You will learn to evaluate and interpret the results to answer a scientific question.

Assessment and permitted materials

The final grade will be calculated as follows:
20% multiple choice test (content: lecture part)
20% active participation and discussion
30% final presentation (30 mins)
30% final report (3-5 pages)

Each of the four components need to be completed.
