CREAMS/PICES International Summer School

on Ocean Circulation and Ecosystem Modeling
August 23-25, 2006, Busan, Korea , National Fisheries Research & Development Institute
Program (pdf, 0.1 Mb)

The CREAMS/PICES summer school will consist of two 1.5-day sessions: SS1 and SS2. Both involve lectures and practice exercises.

Ocean circulation modeling (SS1)
led by Professor Naoki Hirose of Kyushu University
This 1.5 day course will introduce students to simple 1-D/2-D numerical models, 3-D general circulation models, and data assimilation, organized as 3 half-day sessions.
  1. Simple one-dimensional and/or two-dimensional numerical modeling (Prof. Naoki Hirose)
    a. Lecture and tutorials using Fortran and GrADS. GrADS (Grid Analysis and Display System) can be freely downloaded from http://www.iges.org/grads/.
  2. Three-dimensional general circulation models (Each lecture includes how to download and run model codes.
    a. Introduction (Prof. Naoki Hirose)
b. Princeton Ocean Model (Prof. Christopher Mooers)
c. RIAM Ocean Model (Prof. Naoki Hirose)
d. HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model (Dr. Patrick Hogan)
  3. Data assimilation
    a. Introduction (Prof. Naoki Hirose)
b. Kalman filter (Dr. Sang-Jin Lyu)
c. Adjoint method (to be decided)
Ecosystem modeling (SS2)
led by Dr. Shin-ichi Ito of Tohoku National Fisheries Research Institute
This 1.5 day course is organized as 3 half-day sessions. It will introduce students to lower tropic level modeling of marine ecosystems using the NEMURO model, linking lower trophic levels with upper trophic levels (NEMURO.FISH) and tuning parameters by linking the model to data using the PEST software package. Users guides will be provide at the course. The leading instructor is Dr. Shin-ichi Ito, who may also be assisted by Profs. Michio J. Kishi and Fei Chai.
  1. Lectures for NEMURO and NEMURO.FISH
    a. Introduction to marine ecosystem models
b. Introduction to governing equations
c. Introduction to parameters to be determined
  2. NEMURO and NEMURO.FISH hands-on training
    a. Training on 1 box model
b. Training on multi-box model
  3. Data assimilation and parameter estimation with NEMURO and NEMURO.FISH
    a. Introduction of PEST application for NEMURO and NEMURO.FISH
b. Training on PEST application for NEMURO and NEMURO.FISH

Pre-requisite skills and equipment

Students must have a good working knowledge of Fortran. Although desk-top personal computers will be prepared for each student, it is recommended that each student bring their own lap-top computer with a Fortran compiler.
