Research lying at the intersection between mathematics and geoscience has been gaining more and more prominence in recent years, e.g. the worldwide Year of Mathematics for Planet Earth 2013 which incited a lot of activities. The Planet Earth is an excellent example of a forced, dissipative non-equilibrium system dominated by nonlinear processes and featuring multi-scale interactions. The challenges posed by this system have been and will be an inspiration for mathematicians and geoscientists alike. The synergy between mathematics and geoscience is exemplified by the scientific research areas like chaos theory, fractals, extreme events, and data assimilation, which stem or essentially developed through such an interaction. More recently, interdisciplinary exchange with geosciences has led to important advances in further crossover areas such as geometrical mechanics and optimal transport theory with geophysical fluid dynamics, coarse graining and model reduction techniques.

This School aims to educate and motivate young talented PhD students and early career scientists through three specialist lecture courses (supplemented by tutorials) and guest lectures that will provide a panorama of some of the most promising research areas within this interdisciplinary field. The school is organised in partnership with the London Mathematical Society and with the support of the EPSRC-funded CDT Mathematics of Planet Earth (Imperial/Reading)
