DKRZ becomes member of the NCL Advisory Panel

At the first meeting of the newly founded NCL Advisory Panel at the NCAR in Boulder / USA on August 2 and 3, 2018, Karin Meier-Fleischer became the only non-US member of the board on behalf of DKRZ.

During the meeting, which is planned annually for the future, the twelve members discussed the future strategy for the NCL visualization software developed at NCAR. Present-day climate models are producing ever-increasing volumes of data sets on finer and finer computational grids, which push NCL's visualization performance to its limits. To keep abreast of the increasing requirements, the development of the Python-based PyNGL version shall be driven forward. In cooperation between NCAR and DKRZ, a transition guide and a user manual for the long-term transition from NCL to PyNGL and workshops will be developed.
