Ever since the pioneering work of Bjerknes and Richardson at the turn of the 20th century and culminating in the first modern numerical simulations of the climate by John Von Neumann and his school in the 1950s and 1960s, mathematics and the geosciences have found fruitful interactions through the famous Euler, Navier-Stokes, and advection-diffusion equations and their geophysical counterparts the Boussinesq and Primitive Equations. Today, given the complex, uncertain, multi-scale nature of our earth's climate system it is not surprising that stochastic methods have become increasingly fundamental in the study of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. This meeting will therefore facilitate the continued cross-pollination of ideas between scientific communities by bringing together experts in the mathematical theory of the equations of liquids and gases and of stochastic evolution equations with experts in geosciences who work on numerical simulations of large scale models of the earth's oceanic-atmospheric system.
The meeting will be organized around the following interconnected themes which stand at the forefront of current research
