Frontiers of Geophysical Simulation
18 - 20 August 2009 Boulder, Colorado
It is undisputed that the numerical simulation of geophysical processes now plays a central role for understanding the interactions of complex natural phenomena and for making predictions when systems are perturbed.
This workshop will be concerned with numerical methods and related applied mathematics as it relates to geophysical simulation. The main focus of the workshop will be the discussion and presentation of the computational and numerical ingredients that are needed for the next generation climate system models with a focus on Galerkin based space discretizations. Some of the topics include high-resolution methods, limiters, mesh generation, adaptive refinement and novel time integration techniques. Talks that are forward-looking, exploring topics that are necessary for scaling simulations are welcomed. Finally, a part of the workshop will consider the current state-of-the-art high order methods and modeling environment (HOMME) current applications, physics, future use and developments.
The workshop will be held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, 1850 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, Colorado on August 18 - 20, 2009.
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.
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.
