2nd Workshop on Nonlinear Processes in Oceanic and Atmospheric Flows

First Announcement of the 2nd Edition Workshop on Nonlinear Processes in Oceanic and Atmospheric Flows, to be held at the Instituto de Ciencias Matematicas (ICMAT) from 3 to 6 July 2012. All the information about the workshop can be found from the web page:

The Instituto de Ciencias Matematicas (ICMAT) (www.icmat.es) is placed at Campus Cantoblanco UAM, 15 km up to the North of downtown Madrid. This workshop will allow cross-disciplinary interaction among mathematicians, physicists, oceanographers and atmospheric scientists in a wide sense. We intend to build on the momentum and interest resulting from the first meeting on this topic held in 2008 at Castro Urdiales, Spain. Topics to be addressed are both theoretical and observational: Lagrangian transport in aperiodic flows, Lyapunov exponents, coherent mesoscale structures in the atmosphere and the ocean: jets and eddies, characterization and measurement of ocean mixing and their interaction with biological processes, advances in nonlinear techniques applied to ocean and atmospheric data, instabilities in geophysical flows, numerical modelling.
