There's an energetic undergraduate in my differential equations course who is fascinated by ocean modelling. He wants to work on this with me. His plan is to work through the book:
It looks like a great book! It's not free, of course, but you should be able to read the table of contents for free and see what I mean.
He claims to like the idea of doing projects in this book and writing blog articles based on them; he says he likes to write. So, I'm going to try to get him to do this. The book explains things like how to make animated GIFs of simulations, so that could be cool. And, I hope I learn a bit about ocean modelling.
The book's exercises apparently use FORTRAN. This is presumably what climate modellers use, or at least what they used in 2008. One question is whether I can or should get him to do the exercises in some other language. Of course the problem is that I can't really teach him that other language... certainly not in my spare time, anyway!
