Seminar: Introduction to the PALM model system

2023-06-19 in Newsletter

The PALM modelling group of the Institute of Meteorology and Climatology at the Leibniz University Hannover, Germany, is offering a full time 5-day seminar from 14th to 18th August 2023. The seminar will be given in presence [Seminar_announcement, Registration via this form per email to Sebastian Giersch PALM_seminar_registration_form_2023-08_surname].

The PALM model system has been continuously developed at the Institute of Meteorology and Climatology (IMUK), Leibniz Universit├Ąt Hannover (LUH), Germany, since 1997. It is used to study micro- and meso-scale turbulent boundary layer flows in the atmosphere and the ocean. PALM includes a number of advanced features like topography, non-cyclic boundary conditions with turbulent inflow, an embedded Lagrangian particle model allowing explicit treatment of cloud droplet physics, a wind turbine model for simulating complete wind parks including wake effects, or an interface for adding user defined code. Recently, the model has been significantly extended in a collaborative effort of several research institutions for urban applications, which includes explicit treatment of urban surfaces, chemistry, radiation, but also LES-nesting and nesting into larger scale models. Data input and output is in NetCDF format. PALM is optimised for high performance on all kind of state-of-the-art processor architectures and it scales on up to several tens of thousands of processors.
