Summer School: Geophysical Turbulence
14 July - 1 August 2008, Boulder, Colorado
Due to its inherent multidisciplinary nature, and its reliance on modern
observational and experimental techniques, theory, modeling and computation,
the field of geophysical turbulence is difficult for graduate students and
postdoctoral researchers to master. Advancement in the field, by-and-large,
requires a collaborative effort involving scientists with diverse backgrounds
having an understanding of the methodologies utilized and an appreciation
of all the component parts.
The workshop will be held at the National Center for Atmospheric Reasearch's Mesa Laboratory, Main Seminar Room, 14 July - 1 August 2008.
Up to 30 competitive fellowships with stipends covering air travel,
local transportation, lodging and meals are available for graduate
students. Students are expected to be in residence for the full three
weeks of the program.
Applicants are required to register,
submit a short statement indicating reasons for attending, a CV and a
letter from a faculty advisor.
The summer school is sponsored in part by the The National Science Foundation Collaboration in Mathematical Geosciences
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.
