28th IUGG Conference
on Mathematical Geophysics
the 28th international conference on Mathematical Geophysics sponsored by the Committee on Mathematical Geophysics (CMG) of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) will be held in Pisa, Italy, on June 7-11, 2010 and will focus on:
Modelling Earth Dynamics: Complexity, Uncertainty and Validation
Understanding the evolution of our planet is becoming of increasing importance. The variable dynamics of the Earth's solid and fluid components testify to the complexity of non-linear relationships governing such coupled and multiphase systems. Mathematical models are a key tool for understanding these relationships, and represent the only mean for forecasting their evolution. The goal of this meeting is to present the state-of-the-art modelling capability to represent the different dynamics of Earth's components. Theoretical models of solid-earth dynamics, such as earthquake and volcanic processes, and of atmospheric and oceanic dynamics, including climatic and biological evolutionary processes, are welcome. The focus will be on the capability of models to describe the complex evolution of Earth systems and quantify the sources of uncertainty in their dynamics, as well as to reproduce direct observations and laboratory experiments of the investigated processes.
Special session in memory of Prof. Albert Tarantola (by invitation only):
This symposium will address the controversial issue of the use and effectiveness of mathematical models in predicting environmental phenomena.
A limited number of grants will be available to students and participants with restricted funding. Financial assistance may include reimbursement of the registration fee and/or support for accommodation and travel expenditures. Recipients will be reimbursed after the conference.
