The Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences
Theme for 2008: Geophysical Turbulence Phenomena
Workshop 1. Turbulent Theory and Modeling
27-29 February 2008; Boulder, CO
You, your colleagues and students are kindly invited to participate
in the Theme-of-the-Year 2008 Geophysical Turbulent Phenomena
Workshop 1 entitled "Turbulent Theory and Modeling."
The goals of this Workshop are to explore the problem of turbulent
theory and modeling in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences and related
fluid dynamical processes.
The Organizing Committee hopes that the workshop will serve to advance
the state of the art in theory and modeling in a broad class of GFD
applications ranging from global to sub-mesoscales, and to identify
open problems and pressing needs in the field.
The Meeting will feature invited lectures by international experts
on a wide scope of themes, contributed talks and poster presentations
by the participants, round tables and open discussions. Topics will
include atmospheric and oceanic turbulence, coherent structures,
hurricanes, multiscale modeling strategies, and turbulent parameterizations.
The workshop will be held at the National Center for Atmospheric
Reasearch's Mesa Laboratory, Main Seminar Room,
27-29 February 2008.

The Institute for Mathematics Applied to
Geosciences (IMAGe) is a group within
the National Center for Atmospheric Research
(NCAR) for the purpose
of advancing mathematical theory and its application to all
facets of NCAR and the geophysical community at large. IMAGe is
substantially funded by the
National Science Foundation.
IMAGe is composed of four groups;
the Data Assimilation Research Section,
the Geophysical Statistics Project,
the Turbulence Numerics Team, and
the Computational Mathematics Group.
For more information about IMAGe, including post-doc positions,
please contact Doug Nychka.
NCAR was formed in 1960 and has a broad interdisciplinary
research program involving more that 1000 employees of which
several hundred hold advanced scientific or engineering degrees.
The NCAR scientific program includes nearly all aspects of the
atmosphere including climate and weather, atmospheric chemistry,
ecology, instrumentation, scientific computing, and economic and
societal impacts of atmospheric processes.
