Abstract: 

This hands-on interactive workshop will demonstrate innovative online educational resources for University-level courses in atmosphere, ocean, and climate science. We will work through a suite of web-enabled labs built with Google Colaboratory, a cloud-based python notebook server, and Dedalus, an open-source fluid dynamics solver that allows students to enter equations in human-readable format. The labs give students the opportunity to run research-quality numerical simulations, visualize model output, and interrogate data sets --- all from a web browser. The labs and accompanying teaching materials are available freely online with support from the Dedalus Project, the Universitas 21 Global Education Enhancement Fund, and the ARC Centre of Excellence in Climate Extremes.
