Gary Froyland an invited speaker for SIAM Conference on Maths of Planet Earth


Friday, 7th August 2020

Gary Froyland
Professor Gary Froyland will participate in the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Conference on Mathematics of Planet Earth as an invited speaker. 

The August conference (originally to be held in California in June, but now being held predominantly as an online event due to COVID-19), will provide a forum for mathematicians and computational scientists engaged in the areas of climate change, biodiversity, infectious diseases, sustainability, energy, food and water.

Professor Froyland's talk, The Dynamic Ocean, is scheduled for Wednesday 12 August at 9:00 - 9:45am AEST (Tuesday 11 August 7:00 - 7:45pm Eastern Daylight Time). Register for Gary's talk

Professor Froyland is among a small group of researchers hand-picked to deliver invited presentations for the conference

SIAM is the peak US body for applied and industrial mathematics, and aims to advance the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society.

We wish Professor Froyland all the very best for his presentation. 


The Dynamic Ocean: The circulation of our oceans strongly influences climate, weather and biology. Our ocean currents are dynamic, and fluctuate to varying extents. I will introduce data-driven numerical tools that can tease apart dynamic components of the ocean, with information sourced from ocean drifters, satellite imagery, and ocean models. These components, their lifecycles, and their response to external forcing, help us to build a dynamic picture of our ocean.
