  1. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 3 Afternoon Session

    12 May 2015 | Presentations

    Mary Silber, Northwestern UniversityPattern Formation in the Drylands: Self Organization in Semi-Arid EcosystemsMuch of our understanding of spontaneous pattern formation in spatially extended systems was developed in the “wetlands" of fluid mechanics. That setting allowed...

  2. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 2 Morning Session

    12 May 2015 | Presentations

    Juan Restrepo, Oregon State UniversityData AssimilationAccounting for uncertainties has led us to alter our expectations of what is predictable and how such predictions compare to nature. A significant effort, in recent years, has been placed on creating new uncertainty quantification techniques,...

  3. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference

    12 May 2015 | Workshops

    The conference is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications, the Office of Research,College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Mathematics, Department of Geography/Atmospheric Science Program, and The...

  4. Realistic modeling and analysis of synchronization dynamics in power-grid networks

    08 May 2015 | Presentations

    An imperative condition for the functioning of a power-grid network is that its power generators remain synchronized. Disturbances can prompt desynchronization, which is a process that has been involved in large power outages. In this talk I will first give a comparative review of three leading...

  5. Complex Energy Systems

    07 May 2015 | Presentations

    This is the opening guest lecture for the Electric Grid Focus Group.  Dr. Michael Chertkov of Los Alamos National Lab describes the statistical and mathematical problems arising in complex energy systems, including the electric grid and gas networks.  Systems with high penetration of...

  6. Complex Phytoplankton Dynamics: The Mathematical Perspective

    04 May 2015 | Educational Materials

    Bibliography by Arjen Doelman and Antonios Zagaris to accompany tutorial lecture on Phytoplankton-Nutrient Modeling at the 2011 MBI Workshop on Ocean Ecologies and their Physical Habitats in a Changing Climate, and the follow-on lectures on Phytoplankton growth in oligotrophic oceans: Linear...

  7. Emulators in climate science. Uncertainty, sensitivity, calibration and more

    30 Apr 2015 | Presentations

    An emulator or a surrogate is a statistical approximation of a complex numerical model. Emulators are fast to run and include a measure of their own uncertainty. This makes them suitable for a number of applications in climate science. Emulators were originally devised for uncertainty...

  8. Correlated Observation Errors in Data Assimilation

    30 Apr 2015 | Presentations

    Remote sensing observations often have correlated errors, but the correlations are typically ignored in data assimilation for numerical weather prediction. The assumption of zero correlations is often used with data thinning methods, resulting in a loss of information, and reduction in analysis...

  9. Sea Ice Physics and Biology

    18 Mar 2015 | Educational Materials

    Bibliography by S.F.Ackley to accompany tutorial lecture on Biology/Physics Interface in Sea Ice at the 2011 MBI Workshop on Ocean Ecologies and their Physical Habitats in a Changing Climate

  10. NSF's Science Nation Video on David Holland's field work in Greenland

    18 Mar 2015 | Presentations

    MCRN member and founding principal investigator David Holland was featured in the NSF's Science Nation video, titled, "Mathematician uses skills to study Greenland's retreating glaciers," on September 9,...
