3rd International Workshop Nonlinear Processes in Oceanic and Atmospheric Flows

Madrid, Spain, July 6-8 2016

Call for Contributions

The 3rd Edition of the Workshop on Nonlinear Processes in Oceanic and Atmospheric Flows is to be held at the Instituto de Ciencias Matematicas (ICMAT) from 6 to 8 July 2016. The Instituto de Ciencias Matematicas (ICMAT) (www.icmat.es) is placed at Campus Cantoblanco UAM, 15 km up to the North of downtown Madrid.  This workshop will allow cross-disciplinary interaction among mathematicians, physicists, oceanographers and atmospheric scientists in a wide sense. We intend to build on the momentum and interest resulting from the first and second meetings on this topic held in 2008 at Castro Urdiales, Spain and in 2012 at Madrid. 
Topics to be addressed are both theoretical and observational: Lagrangian structures in aperiodic flows, coherent mesoscale structures in the atmosphere and the ocean: jets and eddies, vortices. Advances in nonlinear techniques applied to ocean and atmospheric data and gliders, characterization and measurement of ocean mixing and connectivity and their interaction with biological processes, instabilities in geophysical flows. Numerical modeling of ocean (including the Arctic)  and atmospheric flows and the assessment of their predictive capacity.
