So far, two AROME training courses have been organized for ALADIN/HIRLAM partners :
The 1st AROME training course took place in Poiana Brasov (Romania), on November 21-25, 2005. 53 people from 23 countries attended the one week Seminar. 10 teachers gave 22 hours main lectures on the most important points for running AROME in the forecast mode, considering both the theoretical and the practical aspects of:
- Méso-NH physics
- ALADIN-NH dynamics
- AROME prototype, including the externalized surface module.
The 2nd AROME training course took place in Lisbon (Portugal), on March 4-7 2008.
49 people from 19 countries attended the one week Seminar. 11 teachers gave 16 hours main lectures and 12 hours practical exercises.
This 2nd AROME training course focused on the most important points for running AROME in the real-time weather forecast and research modes, considering the theoretical aspects on Méso-NH physics, AROME settings, NH dynamics in "A-models", RUC, the data assimilation in ALADIN and some practical exercises.
