Postgraduate Studies in Weather and Climate Modeling

Last decade weather and climate modeling have gained importance. To prepare scientists for a career in this exciting research, Ghent University offers since 2007 the postgraduate studies ’Weather and Climate modeling’.

In the first semester a thorough introduction to meteorology, climatology and numerical methods is given. This basic knowledge is used during the second semester in more specific courses like atmospheric modeling, predictability, remote sensing,... The courses are given by researchers working at both national and international institutes and consortia, such as the RMI, VITO, ALADIN, BIRA,...

On this website you can find more information about the courses, some practical issues, contact information,...

  

An infosession about the postgraduate 'Weather and Climate Modeling' is organized on Thursday 11 May 2017 (19h00-20h30 in room V1, building S9, campus De Sterre). Dr Rozemien De Troch (KMI) and dr Steven Caluwaerts (UGent) will first present an introduction to weather and climate modeling. During the second part they will give more information about the postgraduate program. Everyone welcome!
