This is an ICTS-TIFR program with the basic objective of bringing together leading experts in modelling the dynamics of geophysical phenomena, to elucidate the challenges, practical considerations and opportunities and review the present state of understanding. Continue reading

This discussion meeting will mainly cover the following topics: (i) Mathematical theory of tropical meteorology; (ii) Observations and numerical simulations of these phenomena; (iii) Role of clouds and convection in the tropics; (iv) Prediction and data assimilation techniques.

## Conceptual Climate Models: MAA-MCRN Short Course at the 2013 JMM

This two-day short course introduces conceptual models of the Earth’s climate system. The first day is devoted to Energy Balance Models (EBMs): differential equations which express the physical law of energy conservation in mathematical terms. The second day is devoted … Continue reading

Fields Institute program on the Mathematics of Oceans, that is to take place in the year 2013 as a part of the initiative for the Mathematics of Planet Earth.

There are three principal themes for this program:

(1) nonlinear ocean wave dynamics, including extreme wave dynamics such as rogue waves and tsunamis,

(2) oceanic circulation and ocean-atmosphere interaction, including global scale phenomena such as the meridional overturning circulation and currents such as the Gulf Stream, mesoscale processes described by quasi-geostrophic flows, as well as highly nonlinear submesoscale processes, including their role in the stability of the earth’s climate, and the impact of their variations; and

(3) wave interactions and turbulence, including statistical descriptions of ocean wave spectra and its role in predictions of sea state and weather. Continue reading
