  1. Vegetation patterns in mathematical models, and vegetation patterns in Horn of Africa

    21 Apr 2016 | Presentations

    Visually striking large-scale spatial patterns of vegetation have been observed in semi-arid regions in the Americas, Africa and Australia. These have led to suggestions by theoretical ecologists that certain characteristics of the patterns may serve as early-warning signs of desertification....

  2. New averaging results motivated by climate models: fat tails, oscillations, and tipping

    10 Dec 2015 | Presentations

    We review recent results where new averaging approaches are developed and applied in the context of systems with multiple time scales and fat tails  and in non-autonomous multiple scale systems with oscillatory forcing.  These types of systems appear in a variety of higher dimensional...

  7. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 2 Afternoon Session

    12 May 2015 | Presentations

    Charles Jackson, University of Texas, AustinDual-state Behavior of the Community Climate System ModelIce age climate between 80,000 and 11,000 years ago experienced abrupt (< 10 year) global-scale climate transitions every few thousand years. Evidence and theory suggests such behavior may be...
