Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference

Category: Meeting
Description: Web Page: http://www.math.ku.edu/conferences/2015/M2C2 The conference brings together a diverse group of atmospheric scientists and mathematicians. Conference topics of emphasis will include dynamics, high performance computing, numerical analysis, cloud systems behavior, data assimilation, dimension reduction, uncertainty quantification, model hierarchy, and statistical approaches. Henk Dijkstra delivers the public lecture, "Intrinsic Variability in the Climate System," and MCRN members Anna Barry, Sean Crowell, Mary Silber and Laura Slivinski are among the 20+ speakers. Some of the talks will be streamed. Over fifty years have passed since Edward Lorenz’s classic paper in 1963. Substantial mathematical advances in the understanding of highly idealized dynamical systems have been made in the interim. The atmospheric science community has adopted some of the ideas developed by the applied mathematics community, in particular: - an emphasis on the emergent properties of atmospheric flows, represented through a hierarchy of models, ranging from high-resolution cloud-resolving models to coupled Earth-system models - a focus on attractor-like behavior (e.g., slow manifolds) in multiscale atmospheric flows - attempts to identify tipping points and bifurcations in observations and models - use of observations to constrain emergent behavior of models The conference will bring together a diverse group of atmospheric scientists and mathematicians. Conference topics of emphasis will include dynamics, high performance computing, numerical analysis, cloud systems behavior, data assimilation, dimension reduction, uncertainty quantification, model hierarchy, and statistical approaches. The conference will be run in a single session format (no parallel sessions). Additional participants are encouraged to register (before April 3, 2015) at http://www.math.ku.edu/conferences/2015/M2C2/registration.html Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications, and the Department of Mathematics, Department of Geography/Atmospheric Science Program, The Commons at the University of Kansas.
