NCL Visualization Workshop July 3.-5. 2019

Dear users,

the DKRZ hosts a 3-day hands-on tutorial workshop on the data analysis and 2D-visualization software "NCL", a scripting language developed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
This is a beginner level workshop that is focused on the use of NCL for the visualization of 2D gridded model or observational data.

When:

    July 3.-5. 2019  from 09:30 am - 05:00 pm.

Where:

    DKRZ Innovation Lab
    Fuhlentwiete 10
    20355 Hamburg
    (4th floor, room ELBE)

Content:

    - NCL language basics
    - Use of different grid types (rectilinear, curvilinear, irregular)
    - Visualization of scalar data (xy-, contour-, slice-, bar chart-plots)
    - Visualization of vector data (vector arrows, streamlines)
    - Plot layout (panels, overlays, annotations, maps)
    - Creating animations

    More advanced topics can be covered on the third workshop day, specifically towards visualizing your own data.

Prerequisites:

    - Basic Linux/Unix and programming skills are strictly recommended.

    - You are asked to bring your own laptops with you. A few days ahead of the workshop
