If you are attending GSA and interested in learning quick modeling tricks in earth surface processes using a web browser, please join our Landlab short course:
Landlab Earth Surface Modeling Toolkit: Building and Applying Models of Coupled Earth Surface Processes
When/Where: Oct. 21. 8am-5pm. Washington State Convention Center (WSCC)
Instructors: Erkan Istanbulluoglu, Christina Bandaragoda, Sai Nudurupati, Amanda Manaster; Civil and Env. Engineering, Univ. of Washington;
Cosponsor: National Science Foundation.
Landlab is a python-based modeling environment for building numerical models of earth surface processes (https://landlab.github.io/#/). This day-long short course will introduce Landlab and provide hands-on experience to participants with the aim that they will be able to use Landlab in teaching and research upon completing the course. First, we will use Landlab as a watershed analysis tool for mapping hydrologic and geomorphic fluxes. Second, existing coupled models will be introduced and explored, including models for whole landscape evolution, ecohydrology, sediment transport, landslide risk, and flood routing. Participants will run Landlab on their laptops or on CUAHSI’s HydroShare (www.hydroshare.org) using a web browser.
Hope to see you at GSA!
