New averaging results motivated by climate models: fat tails, oscillations, and tipping

We review recent results where new averaging approaches are developed and applied in the context of systems with multiple time scales and fat tails and in non-autonomous multiple scale systems with oscillatory forcing. These types of systems appear in a variety of higher dimensional climate models, …

Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 2 Afternoon Session

Charles Jackson, University of Texas, AustinDual-state Behavior of the Community Climate System ModelIce age climate between 80,000 and 11,000 years ago experienced abrupt (< 10 year) global-scale climate transitions every few thousand years. Evidence and theory suggests such behavior may be explain…

Vegetation patterns in mathematical models, and vegetation patterns in Horn of Africa

Visually striking large-scale spatial patterns of vegetation have been observed in semi-arid regions in the Americas, Africa and Australia. These have led to suggestions by theoretical ecologists that certain characteristics of the patterns may serve as early-warning signs of desertification. This i…
