  8. Data assimilation for extreme ionospheric events: observing system experiments of the September 26, 2011 geomagnetic storm

    14 Apr 2016 | Presentations

    As increasingly sophisticated ground- and space-based technological systems that depend on the near-Earth space environment are being built, vulnerabilities to variations in the ionosphere are also increasing. These vulnerabilities are especially prominent during extreme space-weather events,...

  9. Local and non-local mechanisms of Arctic warming

    25 Feb 2016 | Presentations

    Polar amplification (PA) is a prominent feature of currently observed and predicted future climate change suggested by both observations and models. We will discuss several PA mechanisms and feedbacks in the ocean and the atmosphere suggested by different researchers and connect it to the real...

    Dr. Elchin Jafarov is a research associate at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder. He has a PhD in Geophysics and a masters degree in Mathematics both from the University of Alaska Fairbanks....

  11. Where's the Math in Climate Science?

    09 Nov 2015 | Presentations

    Abstract: Climate science is dominated by the use of large-scale models, of which there are only 30 or so around the world. It might then seem that the need for mathematics is limited to areas that directly support the operation of such models. I will explain, by digging into the way the models...

  12. Hybrid EnKF and Particle Filter: Lagrangian DA and Parameter Estimation

    06 Nov 2015 | Presentations

    Dealing with high dimensional systems is one of the central problems of data assimilation.  A strategy is proposed here for systems that enjoys a skew-product structure.   Christopher Jones, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, presents joint work with Naratip...

  17. 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,...
