From November 28 until December 1, 2006, the workshop 'Mathematics of Earth Sciences' will be held in Groningen. The aim of the workshop is to provide exchange of information and to stimulate interaction between earth scientists who apply mathematical methods and mathematicians. The workshop is part of the activities organised within the cluster 'Nonlinear Dynamics of Natural Systems' (NDNS+).
The organizing committee is
- Henk Broer, University of Groningen
- Henk Dijkstra, IMAU (Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research, University of Utrecht)
- Arjen Doelman, CWI
- Huib de Swart, IMAU (Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research, University of Utrecht)
The workshop will be organised in six different sessions, which focus on specific themes:
- structure of the earth's crust and mantle
- coastal morphodynamics
- atmospheric dynamics
- ocean waves
- climate variability
Each session will consist of 5 oral presentations by invited speakers (both senior and young scientists). In the afternoons poster sessions will be organised.
