NG010:
Scales, Symmetries and  Complex Geophysical Systems : from Theory to Applications





Session ID#: 26746

Session Description:
Geophysical fields display complex structures and extreme variability over wide ranges of scales. Of particular interest is the ubiquitous phenomenon of space-tme intermittency, which corresponds to a rather extreme unsteady behavior.

This session is focused on recent progresses on nonlinear techniques (e.g. scaling, (multi-) fractals, complex networks) to uncover the underlying, non trivial symmetries as well as their applications to data analysis and modelling of geophysical systems and phenomena,
