Applied Mathematics Research Opportunities in Satellite Remote Sensing and Carbon Cycle Dynamics
Abstract: In December 2015, NASA selected the Geostationary Carbon Observatory (GeoCarb) instrument proposed by the University of Oklahoma as the next Earth Venture Mission. GeoCarb will make daily measurements of greenhouse gases over the western hemisphere at a spatial resolution of kilometers, which will provide unprecedented information on the carbon cycle from local and urban scales all the way up to national scales. In this presentation, I will outline some of the recent research using these types of measurements, as well as some of the open topics that need to be addressed in order to realize the potential of this exciting mission. General areas include: uncertainty quantification, data assimilation, fluid mechanics, statistics, initial and boundary value problems, and dynamical systems.
Getting to know the new grad director
The new grad director (Michael Jablonski) will give a brief presentation to introduce himself to the graduate students, talk a little bit about procedures, and take some questions.
