The 5th NAME User Workshop

The 5th NAME User Workshop will be held at the Met Office, Exeter on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th July, 2018.

Content of the workshop

The workshop will focus on the recent developments and applications of NAME

This year’s workshop will introduce the new faster parallel version of NAME, as well as demonstrate the use of NAME for Air Quality forecasting.

There will also be talks on volcanic, chemical, radiological and biological dispersion, as well as ensemble and inverse modelling.

We are also planning ‘demo-groups’ with hands on demonstrations and opportunities for you to ask questions and get help with NAME on Jasmin, the NAME collaboration platform (MOSRS) and other topics.

Attendance, including lunch and refreshments are free of charge.
