Workshop Overview

The Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Laboratory of NCAR invites you to attend the Joint WRF and MPAS Users' Workshop from June 25 - 28, 2024. The event will be held in-person at the NCAR|UCAR Center Green campus in Boulder, Colorado, as well as virtually (online).

The primary objectives for the Users' Workshop are to provide updates for WRF and MPAS modeling systems, to discuss model development and issues, and to present evaluations and applications of the two models. We seek contributions on development and applications using both WRF and MPAS models. Topics will include the following:
     1) WRF/MPAS model and WRF/MPAS/DA development updates 
     2) WRF/MPAS applications in high-resolution regional and global simulations
     3) New Physics development
     4) Evaluation of MPAS in real-time forecasting applications
     5) MPAS/WRF model comparisons

Authors may request either a poster or an oral presentation; however, we encourage authors to consider submissions for a poster presentation due to time constraints for oral sessions. Note that the poster session will be entirely in-person. Most abstracts will be accepted, but we may change your presentation preference.

In addition, we will offer short tutorials on Friday related to our new development. Details will be updated in a later email.
