Vegetation patterns in mathematical models, and vegetation patterns in Horn of Africa
21 Apr 2016  Presentations
Visually striking largescale spatial patterns of vegetation have been observed in semiarid regions in the Americas, Africa and Australia. These have led to suggestions by theoretical ecologists that certain characteristics of the patterns may serve as earlywarning signs of desertification....

Local and nonlocal 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...

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 nonautonomous multiple scale systems with oscillatory forcing. These types of systems appear in a variety of higher dimensional...

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....

Where's the Math in Climate Science?
09 Nov 2015  Presentations  Contributor(s): Laura Slivinski
Abstract: Climate science is dominated by the use of largescale 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...
