Impact cratering on planetary surfaces is one of the most important geological processes in the solar system. The cratered landscapes such as on the Moon, Mars or Mercury testify to the importance of collision events during the evolution of planets. … Continue reading

Synergies between geophysics and mathematics can be traced back to classical Antiquity. More recently, AGU members elaborated concepts such as determinstic chaos, intrinsinc impredictaiblity, strange attractors, fractals and multifractals, statistical theories and turbulence, self-organized-crtiicality as well myriads of methodologies for observations and data processing, models and simulation tools, which enriched both mathematics and geophysics. The AGU Nonlinear Geophysics Focus Group intends to thrive these synergies and is therefore proud to contribute to the worldwide initiative “Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013″ supported by more than 130 academic institutions and scholarly societies, NSF, UNESCO, ICSU and others. This session will highlight and explore fundamental, challenging questions of our planet and how to better develop synergies between mathematics and geophysics. Continue reading

The AGU Focus Group on Nonlinear Geophysics (NG) calls all AGU attendees to freely discuss how to thrive the synergies between geophysics and mathematics to explore the fundamental, challenging questions of our planet and therefore contribute to the worldwide initiative “Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013″, supported by more than 130 academic institutions and scholarly societies, NSF, UNESCO, ICSU, and others.
