The mathematical community offers a wealth of largely untapped resources for advancing climate change research. Yet the subject is full of mathematical challenges, ranging from continuous and stochastic dynamical systems, to inverse problems, data assimilation, efficient numerical numerical methods, quantifying uncertainty, etc. Let's focus some of our energy on these problems!
There are many ways for you to get involved. For example:
MSRI Climate Change Summer School at MSRI in Berkeley, July14 - Aug1, 2008.
We can also include State of the Planet and Sustainability material at many levels in our curricula. It's easy and rewarding, and it's our responsibility as educators! more »
