MCRN Annual Meeting
NCAR, Mesa Laboratory, Boulder, Colorado
Main Seminar Room
Friday October 12, 2012
The Mathematics and Climate Research Network (MRCN) is a virtual organization that brings together leading researchers across the US to study the mathematics that underlies climate science. For essentially every question asked in climate science, a mathematical model is the vehicle for extrapolating into the future. MCRN, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, fosters research in climate process modeling, dynamics of climate, and data analysis and assimilation. IMAGe is a member node of this network and is co-hosting this day of talks by network members on their current research.
All NCAR staff and affiliates are invited to join the talks.

9:45-10:30 KK Tung (U Washington): "Evidence for multidecadal oscillations in global temperature and its impact on the deduced anthropogenic warming"
11:00-11:45 Ray Pierrehumbert (U Chicago) "Deglaciating Snowball Earth"
11:45-12:30 Richard McGehee (U Minnesota) "The Budyko energy balance model from a dynamical systems viewpoint"
1:30-2:15 Inez Fung (UC Berkeley) "CO2-weather data assimilation"
2:15-3:00 Chris Danforth (U Vermont) "Stalking the truth with a cleverly inflated ensemble forecast"
