Training resources

JULES training workshops and online tutorials

The most recent training courses and online resources:

Additionally, the regular UM Training Workshops are THE best place to learn about using JULES in coupled mode, and training is also available regularly for using ARCHER2.


Worked examples

In my experience, it's usually the worked examples people that are the most useful. Here are a selection:

Example Where
A sequence of point runs based on FLUXNET2015 and LBA data This is an ongoing project: For the latest developments, see here (and perhaps also see Patrick McGuire's ppt at the 2018 Exeter Workshop for the state of play in August 2018).
A point run using ASCII input rather than NetCDF

Search Rosie Go for "Loobos"

Eddy's three video tutorials use the same basic data (although on vn5.2):

     JULES Tutorial 1 (Check Out and Go): The single-site Loobos example (using suite u-bb219).
     JULES Tutorial 2 (Spin Me Round): Single-site Loobos with a spin-up added in.
     JULES Tutorial 3 (Go Green): Single-site Loobos with dynamic vegetation.

*** n.b. Loobos data should NOT be used for any serious work: it is only example data to demonstrate the use of JULES ***

A gridded run using 1D (land axis) NetCDF input

Toby's JULES From Scratch tutorial used to include a gridded run like this, but removed Oct 2022.

Alberto Martínez's practical 2 from the 2016 JULES Short Course based on the River Thames, U.K. (vn4.5)

A gridded run using 2D NetCDF input

See Toby's JULES From Scratch tutorial.

Also see UsingGriddedDatasets (the link is worth reading, but note the example it describes is only for JULESvn4.1 and also the driving data for GSWP2 are not provided and you can't actually run it without acquiring those files (and Toby doesn't have them!))


Older training resources

I believe that these are still worth going through to pick up tips, but n.b. they do not refer to (and therefore cannot help with) the latest versions of JULES.
