Mathematics of Planet Earth

By on 14/05/2017

April 22 this year was a special Earth day, with a March For Science  in several parts of the world.

Mathematics have been involved for years in Earth science. You may remember 2013, declared the year of Mathematics of Planet Earth by the UNESCO. Since then, many events took place and the MPE initiative has been perpetuated. To have an idea of mathematical research in connection with our planet you may take a look at the multitude of articles and posters and blogs (this one in French) that have appeared, watch videos of conferences (for instance in English  or French) that have been given.

If you are a student you might also enroll in the Mathematics of Planet Earth Centre for Doctoral Training.

If you are a professional you may enter the international MPE competition and submit your exhibition modules. Note that there will be a special prize for Africa-related exhibits.
The deadline is June 30, 2017.
