NP
Nonlinear Processes in Geosciences

Tommaso Alberti

I am a researcher at the Institute for Space Astrophysics and Planetology, an Institute within INAF (National Institute for Astrophysics), in Rome, Italy. My research activity is focused on data analysis and modeling, via dynamical system and statistical mechanics approaches, to understand complexity in geoscience, space plasma, and planetary environment. My interests cover all aspects of geosciences (magnetosphere, ionosphere, climate variability), planetary environments (coupling with solar wind, plasma physics, exosphere), and space plasma (turbulence, intermittency, MHD vs. sub-proton physics) on both theoretical and data analysis aspects. I am the Early Career Scientists Representative for the Nonlinear Processes in Geosciences (NP) Division.

NP Interviews: Davide Faranda (CNRS) on the topic “global warming and extreme events in Europe”

NP Interviews: Davide Faranda (CNRS) on the topic “global warming and extreme events in Europe”

Davide Faranda is a physicist at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). His main interests are devoted to the construction of a statistical mechanical and dynamical systems framework for the study of atmospheric motions. In particular, his works aim at the characterization of the metastable states of the atmospheric circulation with simple mathematical and statistical tools, an ...[Read More]

A new virtual seminar series on Climate Physics organized by the American Physical Society (APS) group in Physics of Climate

The APS Topical Group on the Physics of Climate (APS-GPC) is excited to launch a new virtual monthly seminar series on climate physics and variability. These seminars are aimed at introducing the broader physics community (and math, engineering, and other communities) to the fundamentals of climate science as well as cutting-edge research and open questions in this field. APS invites you to attend ...[Read More]

NP Campfire: “Scaling and multifractals : from historical perspectives to recent developments”

NP Campfire: “Scaling and multifractals : from historical perspectives to recent developments”

Scaling law behaviours are ubiquitous in geosciences both from a theoretical and practical point of view. They are required to better understand, analyse and simulate the underlying processes, which yields the observed variability of geophysical fields over wide ranges of spatio-temporal scales. A group of scientists within the Nonlinear Processes in Geosciences (NP) Division of the European Geosc ...[Read More]

NP Interviews: the 2021 Lewis Fry Richardson Medal Berengere Dubrulle

NP Interviews: the 2021 Lewis Fry Richardson Medal Berengere Dubrulle

Today’s NP Interviews hosts the 2021 Lewis Fry Richardson Medal Berengere Dubrulle. Berengere is senior scientist at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and presently Director of the Les Houches Physics School. She received her PhD in astrophysics in 1990 under the supervision of J.-P. Zahn. She is a specialist of turbulence, and its application to astro and geophysical flows using th ...[Read More]
