Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas- ICMAT. Campus de Cantoblanco, Madrid (Spain)
The meeting will be structured along four days, allowing cross-disciplinary interaction among mathematicians, physicists, oceanographers and atmospheric scientists in a wide sense. It will focus on nonlinear dynamics of atmospheric and oceanic phenomena and it aims to create an international forum where prominent researchers investigate the power and impact of Mathematics in these areas and at the same time explore new mathematical challenges proposed by open problems in ocean and atmosphere sciences. Topics to be addressed are both theoretical and observational: Lagrangian transport in aperiodic flows, Lyapunov exponents, coherent mesoscale structures in the atmosphere and the ocean: jets and eddies, characterization and measurement of ocean mixing and their interaction with biological processes, advances in nonlinear techniques applied to ocean and atmospheric data, instabilities in geophysical flows, numerical modelling.
