IPSL Training courses

Training courses in modipsl and libIGCM

The platform group at IPSL climate Center gives 2 different one-day training courses in how to use the IPSL models and the tools necessary. Both courses are given in English. In general the morning is dedicated to lecture and the afternoon to hands on exercises. The courses are given at Maison de la Simulation or at IDRIS in a classroom equipped by computers used during the hands on sessions. See below the description, presentation and exercises of the latest training courses. This material is updated before each new course.

Basic training course to learn how to use modipsl and libIGCM. This course is for beginners and for people who want to refresh their memory.

Hands on exercises : The exercises are done at temporary training account at ada IDRIS but most of the exercises can also be done at TGCC(curie) or LSCE(obelix). Download the hands on exercises here : training_exercises_nov2018.pdf.

Registration in advance to the courses are needed. This is necessary to have entrance access at IDRIS where the courses are given.

Next training session

The training course in running environment of IPSL models will be given 27th - 28th of November 2018 at IDRIS in Orsay (91).

This course is for beginners and for people who want to refresh their memory. The program for these two days is: overview of modipsl/libIGCM tools, how to launch a simulation, the post-processing step, how to best follow a simulation, repair errors, verify and redo post-treatment. These days contains lecture and hands on session.

Day 1- 27th of November, 9h15-17h30 : Basic training session to learn how to use modipsl and libIGCM. The session contains lecture and hands on session.

Day 2- 28th of November, 9h15-17h30 : Continuing of basic and more advanced session: lecture and hands on session.

IPSL workflow for CMIP6

overview of the IPSL workflow for CMIP6 from the model retrieval to the data publication on the IPSL ESGF node.


Have you just started your PhD and do you easily get lost in front of a terminal? Would you like to learn core tools and become more productive in your research?

In a daily-based climate science work, there exists a wide range of tools used to simplify scientific work. They are well known by the community, but might be not at all for a beginning PhD student. At the same time, supervisors do not usually have time to introduce them to their students ...

The `IPSL Boot camp' pretends to amend this issue. The course will provide a first approach to a bunch of well known and useful tools such as: NetCDF tools (nco, cdo, ncdump...), Python, Ferret, Unix commands, Bash and Shell scripts, Vi and Emacs, Version control (Svn) ... to any one who has never known about them.

A small group of IPSL researchers and engineers will provide a first touch to anyone within the IPSL who might require it. Short tutorials, practical exercises and live coding are the main ingredients of this very first introductory sessions of core tools that can simplify your research work.

Last training session 24 of March 2016
