Welcome to our Weather Research and Forecasting model course! This course is part of the Establishing Operational Capacity for Building, Deploying and Using Numerical Weather and Seasonal Prediction Systems in SIDs in Africa project, co-ordinate by Dr. Ólafur Rögnvaldsson at UiB and Dr. Joseph Intsiful at UNECA. The project is focused on weather and climate applications in the African Small Island Developing states (SIDs) and is funded with the support of DFID and the European Union to the ClimDev work programme.
This e-course gives an introduction to the WRF atmospheric modeling system and once finished you should be able to successfully set up, and run, the WRF model.
The contents are divided into six parts (from 0 to 5). You can go through each part at your own time and pace. If you have questions along the way, you can post them on our Facebook group. To get started, you can work on the contents of PART 0 and PART 1. There, you will learn more about the objectives of the course and how to install the necessary software. Please, join us on Facebook!
We wish you all a wonderful WRF Tutorial!
