2016 TIMS Symposium on Environmental Flows

June 14 - 15, 2016 
101, Mathematics Research Center Building (ori. New Math. Bldg.)

Taida Institute of Mathematical Science (TIMS) will host a symposium on environmental flows on June 14-15. The symposium focuses on understanding the fluid motion that contributes to the functioning and variability of our environments, such as those in river, lake, ocean, and atmosphere. The ideas behind the symposium are to provide (1) tutorial lectures on selected fluid dynamics problems for students, and (2) a forum for environmental flow research and collaboration. The symposium consists of morning tutorial lectures and short research talks in the afternoon. This year's speaker is Steve Lentz from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Prof. Lentz will give tutorial lectures on "Wind-driven Continental Shelf Circulation". The short talks in the afternoon will showcase the diverse spatial and temporal scales associated with environmental flows, ranging from turbulence (1st talk) to climate change (last talk). We welcome students and researchers from any discipline to come. Welcom to 2017 TIMS Symposium on Environmental Flows
