Global Warming Could Be Nonlinear
23 Nov 2015   Contributor(s):: Jonah BlochJohnson
It is widely acknowledged that many components of the Earth's climate system exhibit nonlinear behavior when forced, with examples ranging from ice sheets to ocean circulations to savanna. These changes, as profound as they are, are not expected to greatly impact global climate, as...

Where's the Math in Climate Science?
09 Nov 2015   Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones
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...

Powerpoint Intro to Potential Analysis
16 Sep 2015   Contributor(s):: Darren Anthony Marotta
A technique to detect the number of states in a geophysical system attained from recorded time series. Potential Analysis estimates the degree of a polynomial, which determines the number of states in the time series. Changes in the number of states represent bifurcations of the system.
