The African Centre for Climate and Earth System Science (ACCESS), in conjunction with the University of Cape Town's Marine Research Institute (Ma-Re) is hosting a 2-week ocean modelling workshop in Cape Town.

The workshop, currently in its fourth day, has seen delegates being exposed to many topics related to the numerical modelling of oceans as well as the intrisic technological requirements for these tasks. The range of expert presenters have already discussed topics such as overall form and function of ocean models, the derivation of shallow water equations and the simplifications and parameterisations allowing those to be numerically modelled, as well as an introduction to parallel high performance computing.

The workshop will continue until Thursday, 20 March 2008. For more information about the workshop, contact the Ma-Re Institute at 021-6503283.
