    11'''Material of the FLEXPART V10.3 training: 1-3 July 2019'''

    3 The material consist of presentations from the lectures and exercises, files needed per exercise and one recording.
    4 Beside this, there is the bashrc file that was used for this course, a script to download GFS data, a script to generate an AVAILABLE file and a script to process and plot the output (for tracer, nuclear and volcanic simulations).
     3The course material including slides and software can be  [download:65 downloaded here].

    6 The course was given with Flexpart version 10.3, but should be forward compatible.
    7 To obtain the latest version:
     5The material consists of
     61. presentations (PDF) from the lectures and exercises,
     72. files needed per exercise and
     83. one mp4 file (video recording of the lecture on flex_extract). As it is quite big, you need to download it separately from https://www.flexpart.eu/downloads/67
     9Beside this, there is
     101. a script to download GFS data,
     112. a script to generate AVAILABLE files and
     123. a script to process and plot the output (for tracer, nuclear and volcanic simulations).
     13
     14We recommend using ECMWF data, whose retrieval is explained in the flex_extract lecture and exercise. However, results obtained with GFS data are
     15also included in this course. All is written in Python 2.7 or Fortran 90.
     16
     17FLEXPART V10 requires the following Linux packages:
     18gcc with gfortran, including development files
     19grib_api
     20netcdf including the Fortran library and e(optional)
     21netcdf4 including the Fortran library and development files(optional)

     23The course material was prepared using flexpart_v10.3.1_3cd0f17 and

    20 If you work in a bash shell and you do not have a tailored bashrc file yet: save the bashrc file to your home directory and rename it by added a dot in front: .bashrc. If you already have a tailored bashrc or do not work in bash: check if you have the listed packages.
