MPE is an international initiative to promote as a year for research into the mathematics underpinning everything from climate change to disease patterns to celestial mechanics. The initiative has a strong outreach component: Hans Kaper, an applied mathematician and professor emeritus at Argonne National Laboratory, is the designated blog wrangler.
But perhaps least such presentations can educate those with an open mind.
While the problems we face have deep roots, major transformations in society have always caused and been helped along by revolutions in mathematics.
It may not be in the same place, may not be of the same strength or have the same temperature and salinity characteristics, but as long as the continents bound the great ocean basins, the sun shines, the earth turns toward the east and the wind blows in response, there will be a Gulf Stream.
How can we assign a skill score to ensemble weather forecasts? To illustrate, Baez and Tanzer include two concrete examples with helpful pictures. The exhibition has a virtual part, as well as several material parts.
Posted on April 22, by evelynjlamb Rogue waves in art and nature. They are of four types: The modules can be reproduced and utilized by many users around the world from science museums to schools.
Copies of the material parts can be recreated or travel around the world, and the virtual modules are available on the basis of creative commons licenses. Beyond a simple answer to that question Earth is a planet, and it moves in spaceRousseau gives a great crash course in the n-body problem, KAM theory, and the current understanding of the instability of the inner planets.
Does the earth system have metastable states? See the MPE project for more information. For more information on the Mathematics of Planet Earth initiative please look at: Students in the MPE CDT will receive cohort-based PhD training in the mathematical and computational techniques needed to understand, predict and quantify risk and uncertainty for extreme weather and climate change.
Cohort training Will adaptive meshes produce better climate predictions?
It seems appropriate today to highlight the Mathematics of Planet Earth blog. Climate change may well bring changes in the Gulf Stream.
They will form the base of a traveling exhibition that could be rented. The modules cover a wide variety of topics such as astronomy, fluid dynamics, the mathematics of volcanoes or glaciers and problems in cartography.
It is a network-theoretic approach to a biological subject, and it is mathematics—replete with lemmas, theorems and algorithms—from start to finish. Collaborative working How do we model global ocean circulation? What is the impact of geostrophic turbulence on the large scale ocean circulation?Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE ) has been an initiative of mathematical sciences organizations around the world designed to showcase the ways in which the mathematical sciences can be useful in tackling our world's problems.
Happy Earth Day! It seems appropriate today to highlight the Mathematics of Planet Earth blog. In fact, it’s triply appropriate: today is Earth Day, April is Mathematics Awareness Month (with a theme this year of the mathematics of sustainability), and is the year for Mathematics of Planet.
Math, Sustainability, and Planet Earth Math Awareness Month Poster As this issue of SIAM News goes to press, preparations for the celebration of Mathematics Awareness Month in April have produced impressive results. Inan international partnership of more than scientific societies, research institutes, and organizations focused its attention on these challenges.
This project was called Mathematics of Planet Earth and featured English- and French-language blogs, accessible to nonmathematicians, as part of its outreach activities. The International Center of Mathematics CIM is a partner institution of the International Program Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE ).
CIM plans to organize and support several activities in the scope of International Program Mathematics of Planet Earth. Monthly August ice extent for to shows a decline of % per decade.
