Conference on the Mathematics of Sea Ice

Category: Meeting
Description: Interesting mathematics arises in many areas of the study of sea ice and its role in climate. Partial differential equations, numerical analysis, dynamical systems and bifurcation theory, diffusion processes, percolation theory, homogenization and statistical physics represent a broad range of active fields in applied mathematics and theoretical physics which are relevant to important issues in climate science and the analysis of sea ice in particular. We will explore how these areas of mathematics are being used to advance our understanding of sea ice, improve projections of climate change.

We will focus our attention on topics which include the following:
• Sea ice and global climate models
• Sea ice processes and the climate system
• Linkage of scales - homogenization of effective properties
• Bifurcations in low order nonlinear models of polar climate
• Polar ecosystems, biogeochemistry of sea ice, and climate change.
