This graduate course is being offered in Fall 2014.  Instructor is Dr. Neal Scott.  There will be an organizational meeting the first week of the semester.  Interested students should contact Dr. Scott as soon as possible (neal.scott@queensu.ca)

 

GPHY 819  Modeling the Earth System

This course will take students through the process of developing, testing, and validating system models.  It will start by introducing students to the philosophy of modeling, and different types of modeling approaches.  We will then explore, using the literature, various modeling approaches involving systems of interest to the students and/or online versions of various models.  Students will learn how to use the modeling software STELLA (developed by isee systems), and to utilize the software to analyze their models (including uncertainty analysis and model validation).  The latter half of the course will be largely dedicated to students working on and reporting on individual projects, which may or may not be related to their own research.  No prior modeling experience is required!!
