Tommaso Alberti

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Space Astrophysics and Planetology, an Institute within INAF (National Institute for Astrophysics), in Rome, Italy. My work focuses on nonlinear dynamical system approaches and time series analysis in geosciences with particular interests in solar wind – magnetosphere – ionosphere interactions and coupling, space and near-Earth plasma turbulence, and Earth’s climate dynamics. I am the Early Career Scientists Representative for the Nonlinear Processes in Geosciences (NP) Division.

NP Division at the General Assembly 2020

Each year the European Geosciences Union organizes the largest European geosciences event which is the EGU General Assembly. It usually attracts over than 15000 scientists from all over the world, including both established researchers and early career scientists, who contribute to more than a half of the participants. It consists of several sessions (usually more than 500), covering a wide spectr ...[Read More]

NP Interviews: the 2019 Lewis Fry Richardson Medallist Shaun Lovejoy

NP Interviews: the 2019 Lewis Fry Richardson Medallist Shaun Lovejoy

Today’s NP Interviews hosts the Lewis Fry Richardson Medallist Shaun Lovejoy. Shaun has degrees in physics from Cambridge and McGill University; he has been a McGill professor since 1985. For four decades, he has developed fractal, scaling ideas in the geosciences, contributing to advances in cascade processes, multifractals, anisotropic scale invariance, space-time multifractal modeling as well a ...[Read More]

NPG Paper of the Month: “Unravelling the spatial diversity of Indian precipitation teleconnections via a non-linear multi-scale approach”

Schematic map of spatial diversity of Indian precipitation teleconnections at different time scales. (a) ENSO, (b) IOD, (c) NAO, (d PDO, and (e) AMO. Colors are consistent with the Indian community shown in the right figure. Presence of color in community segment indicates significant synchronization between teleconnection and Indian precipitation. Every single segment of circle shows the temporal scale. Cardinal direction has been projected in the background of each circle.

Today’s we launch one of our promised activities: the NPG Paper of the Month. This month the award is achieved by Jürgen Kurths and co-authors for their paper “Unravelling the spatial diversity of Indian precipitation teleconnections via a non-linear multi-scale approach” (https://www.nonlin-processes-geophys.net/26/251/2019/). Ankit Agarwal, one of the authors of the manuscript, tells ...[Read More]
