Maths of climatology

  1. Jan 15, 2005 #1
    Hello all, I am new to the forum

    I have a major interest in climatology - particularly the numerical modelling of weather systems. I have some experience in this, but are planning to make a user friendly prgram for use in schools (surprise, i am a teacher), can others direct me to some numerical models and simulations that i may base my program on.

    What educational advantages do you anticipate for a numerical modelling approach as opposed to presentation and development of understanding of physical principles driving weather?

    You might be able to pick up ideas snooping around the NOAA and NCAR sites --- however, public school budgets seldom include much for running supercomputers, so their approaches to developing and running numerical models might not be appropriate for the resources available to you.
