  5. A Tutorial on Kalman Filters

    01 Jun 2016 | Presentations

    This is an introduction to the Kalman filter, explaining some underlying assumptions, use and extensions of the method.This talk was given on 10-7-2015.

  6. 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....

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. Tipping points and power cuts

    18 Jun 2015 | Presentations

  10. Who, or what, will tip the big climate models?

    18 Jun 2015 | Presentations

  11. ICMS Tipping Points: Fundamentals and Applications

    13 Jun 2015 | Workshops

    Objectives: This workshop (September, 2013) brings together mathematicians and statisticians, whose research expertise is relevant to investigating threshold behaviour in complex environmental systems, with the climate scientists and ecologists who exploit mathematical modelling in their research...

  12. 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...

  13. 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...

  14. 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,...

  19. 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...

  20. Introduction to the Mathematics of Climate

    07 May 2015 | Series

    This course will investigate the following questions from a mathematical perspective. What determines the Earth's surface temperature? Why does the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere affect the climate? How do changes in the Earth's orbital parameters change the climate? Why has the Earth...
