This 3.5 day workshop is geared towards new users of the NCAR Command Language (NCL), a scripting language for the analysis and visualization of geoscientific data. It will consist of a combination of introductory lectures and hands-on labs. During the labs, the instructors will work with students one-on-one to help them write NCL programs for analyzing their own data.

The instructors are Dennis Shea, an associate scientist in NCAR/CGD, and Mary Haley, a software engineer in NCAR/CISL.

Students are expected to have a basic knowledge of programming in one or more languages like Fortran, C, Python, IDL, or matlab, and must be comfortable working on a UNIX system.

Registration is free and limited to 16 students, so be sure to register as soon as possible.
