The Banff International Research Station will host the "Nonlinear and Stochastic Problems in Atmospheric and Oceanic Prediction" workshop from November 19th to November 24th, 2017.

The nonlinear and stochastic methods have been widely applied in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences, and play a fundamental role in improving the atmospheric and oceanic prediction skill. However, some important issues, which are highly related to nonlinear and stochastic methods, still remain and are challenging to the prediction community.

This broadly interdisciplinary workshop brings together researchers from mathematics / Statistics, and environmental scientists from Atmospheric Science, Oceanography, and Climate Science. The synergistic workshop will explore prediction problems, which will benefit from the application of nonlinear and stochastic methods, and the development of new nonlinear and stochastic methods to address the unique needs of various challenges in atmospheric and oceanic predictions.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides
an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disc
iplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineeri
ng Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional
de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
