Partial Differential Equations and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

2nd December 2013 to 6th December 2013

Organisers: Mike Cullen (Met Office) and Beatrice Pelloni (Reading)


The field of partial differential equations applicable to geophysical fluid dynamics has recently seen an extraordinary development, as in recent years there have been very important advances in the understanding of the fundamental governing systems of equations, and of geophysically relevant asymptotic approximations to them. This has been the result of using new mathematical tools from, for instance, probability, optimal transport and geometric measure theory.

In this workshop, we aim to bring together researchers with an interest in the rigorous theory of the governing equations and asymptotic approximations to them, and those who are applying these equations to understand and model geophysical flows. The aim is to aid the understanding of how to exploit the results in explaining geophysical phenomena and in improving model design; and to suggest ways in which the mathematical theory could be most usefully extended.
