Abstract: The Earth offers a multitude of modeling challenges, from the dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans, to the melting of the polar ice caps. To understand and model these climate processes, a wide range of mathematics is needed, such as differential equations, multiscale modeling, and stochastic processes. In this minisymposium, the presentations span a broad range of climate processes and mathematical areas, and will be accessible to a more general audience. They include a blend of modeling, experiments, and data analysis, and demonstrate how mathematics is being employed to address fundamental problems of climate science.
