The 8th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2015)

August 10-14, 2015, in Beijing, China

MCRN member participation includes:

MS-Mo-D-07   Mathematics of Climate: From the Tropics to Antarctica, Part 1 of 3

August 10, 13:30--15:30, Room 7

Organizers:
Stechmann, Samuel (Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison)
Golden, Kenneth (MCRN and Univ. of Utah)

Abstract: The Earth offers a multitude of modeling challenges, from the dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans, to the melting of the polar ice caps. To understand and model these climate processes, a wide range of mathematics is needed, such as differential equations, multiscale modeling, and stochastic processes. In this minisymposium, the presentations span a broad range of climate processes and mathematical areas, and will be accessible to a more general audience. They include a blend of modeling, experiments, and data analysis, and demonstrate how mathematics is being employed to address fundamental problems of climate science.
