"Sharing Planetary modelling run results in VESPA"

27-29 November 2017

Brussels, Belgium

Objectives of the meeting

The VESPA simulation workshop will cover different aspects related to including atmospheric data, simulations, and related tools within VESPA. 

This includes

  • (new) atmospheric inputs for the VO,
  • data from models (GCM ),
  • tools needed to view/compare data,
  • on-line call to radiative codes.

The workshop will start on Monday 27 November (13:00) and finish on Wednesday 29 Nov. (17:00).
