Community Modeling and Analysis System


The CMAS Center is a leader in atmospheric modeling training. Our trainers have decades of experience teaching meteorology, emissions, and air quality modeling and analysis to students from around the world. While the classes focus on the operational aspects of CMAS-supported software, they combine modeling practice with lectures on the underlying theories and science of the modeling software.

Other Courses

CMAS trainings consist of classroom sessions and hands-on computer laboratory sessions. All of the hands-on training material use the Linux Operating System. A working knowledge of the Linux command line is a prerequisite for these classes. Students who do not know the Linux command line well must learn the basics on their own before attending the class. A search of the web yields many options for free Linux tutorials. The UNIX/Linux tutorial from the University of Surry, UK is a good example of a Linux primer.

Training Location

Most trainings are offered online, and once registered, you will be notified of software requirements about one week before the start of the course.

Training courses can also be conducted off site, provided that appropriate facilities are available and there are an adequate number of interested students. Email to inquire about off-site trainings. Please include a brief explaination of how the CMAS Center can help you meet your training needs.
