General Information
 

 

Presentation
 

Many conceptual climate models have been formulated as nonsmooth dynamical systems, dating back to Stommel's 1961 model for large-scale ocean circulation in the North Atlantic.  Over the last decade, nonsmoothness has become more prevalent as scientists describe evolution equations in discrete climate states.  Some recent focus has turned towards tipping points, the transitions between climate states. While such an understanding is critical, it could be that climate systems carve out questions much more novel to nonsmooth theory, leading to new analyses of the multiple scales encountered in climate modeling. This workshop will bring together researchers that are knowledgeable and/or curious about nonsmooth systems and/or climate science, in an effort to obtain a deeper understanding of critical climate transitions.
