Period: Not being run in 2012 August

Dr. Kai Logemann

and Teaching material



Purpose and Content
The basic physical equations describing the ocean will be discussed.
Combined with an introduction to the programming language Fortran, the students will learn how to solve these equations with numerical methods. At the end of the course the students will have developed a simple ocean model.

- the programming language is Fortran
- the course will cover basic hydrodynamic equations and numerical methods

Course Prerequisites
The course is only open to graduate students. General computer and numeric literacy is required. Students must have some experience using a statistical computer system (e.g. Fortran, Minitab, R, S-PLUS, SAS, Matlab, SPSS...). Ideally the students should have some experience in Fortran or be willing to spend a week preparing themselfs for using Fortran. Introductionary material will be provided.
