Mathematics and Climate Change Research Network

Research project


Proposed is a network of researchers committed to the development of mathematical ideas and techniques for problems that arise in connection with a changing climate. The network will be organized around nodes which will each develop their own local character and research objectives. The network will create and nurture research connections and collaborations between these nodes. A communal identity will result from the network that will place each research initiative of the network into a comprehensive picture connecting mathematics and climate change research. Each node will be directly involved in at least one particularly strong connection, but also have the flexibility to engage in new connection opportunities that arise. Network events will be arranged at which all the network researchers will meet, present research progress, share ideas and learn from others. Regular contact will be maintained through weekly web seminars and web-based research group “meetings.” The majority of the effort will be aimed at engaging junior researchers, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, at the nodes and they will travel to connected nodes for extended periods so as to learn new ideas and to cement the collaborations.
