UKCA Chemistry and Aerosol Tutorials at vn11.8 using Rose & Cylc

The following tutorials will teach you how to use various aspects of UKCA, and the parts of Rose (the Unified Model's python-based user interface) that are specific to UKCA.

Please work through the UKCA Tutorials below at your own pace. They should take between 14 and 21 hours to complete, but don't worry if you take more or less time than this.

# Difficulty Time to Complete Topic
1 EASY Under 1 hour Running an existing UKCA Suite
2 EASY Under 1 hour Exploring Rose
3 EASY Under 1 hour What is STASH?
4 HARD 2 or more hours Adding new chemical tracers
5 HARD 2 or more hours Adding new emissions
6 MEDIUM 1-2 hours Adding new chemical reactions
7 MEDIUM 1-2 hours Adding dry deposition of chemical species
8 EASY Under 1 hour Adding wet deposition of chemical species
9 HARD 2 or more hours Adding new UKCA chemical diagnostics
10 HARD 2 or more hours Examining Aerosol Impacts

These tutorials are an update and expansion of the tutorials which were at UM8.2, UM8.4, UM10.4, and UM10.9.


These tutorials have been funded by the National Centre for Atmospheric Science, the NERC Advanced Training: Short Courses award scheme, and the ACITES Atmospheric Chemistry Modelling Network. Many thanks to JASMIN for use of the Unmanaged Cloud.
