Bridging Mathematics and Climate Science: the AMS MRC programme for June-July 2024

The American Mathematical Society’s Mathematics Research Communities (MRC) continues to be a beacon for early-career mathematicians seeking professional development. This esteemed program offers opportunities to hone collaborative research skills, cultivate networks within active research domains, and benefit from mentorship by leaders in the field. As part of the MRC initiative, the upcoming conference, scheduled for June 30 to July 6, 2024, will serve as a platform for delving into the intersection of mathematics, particularly Topological Data Analysis (TDA), and nonlinear geophysics. Under the guidance of mathematical and climate-science experts, the event will explore the nuanced relationship between mathematical tools, specifically topology, and the intricacies inherent in nonlinear geophysical phenomena.

Mathematics in Nonlinear Geophysics
This conference will shed light on the role of mathematics, particularly topology, in the understanding of nonlinear geophysics. The focus lies on investigating how mathematical frameworks, such as TDA, can provide insights into the complex patterns and behaviors inherent in nonlinear geophysical processes. Amidst the challenges posed by climate change, the conference will explore the application of topological data analysis, including techniques like persistent homology. This exploration seeks to understand how these tools can navigate the inherent complexities of climate data, transcending issues related to dimensionality and scale.

Bridging Mathematics and Nonlinear Geophysics
Topology acts as a conduit between the abstract world of mathematics and the practical complexities of nonlinear geophysics. The conference will delve into how topological features, such as loops and holes, can play a role in uncovering essential constraints on future trajectories within climate dynamics. This connection provides potential insights into weather phenomena, including midlatitude jetstreams. The MRC Conference welcomes participants from various backgrounds, including mathematics, climate science, and dynamical systems. The primary goal is to foster collaborations that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Regardless of one’s specialization in mathematics, climate science, or systems theory, each perspective is acknowledged and valued within this interdisciplinary exploration. As we venture into new territories within this collaborative framework of mathematics and geophysics, MRC Conference Week 3a extends an invitation for participants to engage in an interdisciplinary journey. The event seeks to unravel connections where mathematics intersects with nonlinear geophysics through the lens of topology, with the intent of providing potential solutions and deeper insights into the climate-change challenges that lie ahead.

How to apply?
Applications for this conference will be accepted through until Thursday, February 15, 2024 (11:59 p.m. EST). This is an opportunity to contribute to the exploration at the intersection of mathematics and nonlinear geophysics.

I’m researcher in physics at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). I’m an expert of weather extreme events such as cold spells, heatwaves, cyclones and severe thunderstorms. My research activity focuses on the attribution of extreme events to climate change, that is understanding how much greenhouse gases influence the occurrence of extremes
