Our regular seminar program covers a broad range of topics from applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics. All staff and students are welcome. This page has a complete list of past seminars and a list restricted by year can be accessed via the left-hand menu.

Amandine Schaeffer and Matthew Archer - Oceanography Lab, UNSW Mathematics and Statistics
In this two-part talk, Dr's Amandine Schaeffer and Matthew Archer from the Oceanography Lab (UNSW Mathematics and Statistics) present recent work using HF radar measurements in two western boundary...

Herbert E. Huppert - Institute for Theoretical Geophysics, DAMTP, University of Cambridge and UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics
The seminar will discuss a variety of fluid flows in porous media, relevant to situations in carbon dioxide sequestration; groundwater flows; vapour motions in volcanic conduits; the extraction of...

Gary Brassington - Bureau of Meteorology
The Bureau of Meteorology has been forecasting the mesoscale ocean state and circulation in the Australian region since 2008. The leading order problem for the first few systems has been data...

Philippe Guyenne - University of Delaware
Based on a Hamiltonian formulation of a two-layer ocean, we consider the situationin which internal waves are treated in the long-wave regime while surface wavesare described in the modulation regime...

Balasubramanya Nadiga - Los Alamos National Laboratory
Earth system models (ESM) are the most comprehensive tools we have to study climate change and develop climate projections. However, the computational infrastructure required and the cost incurred in...

Stephen Griffies - NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory & Princeton University
We survey aspects of global and regional sea level, focusing on physical mechanisms accounting for sea level change in the past century and introducing potential future changes. We start by exploring...

Ryo Furue - Japanese Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC)
At 5,500 kilometres, the Leeuwin Current is the world's longest coastal or boundary current and arguably Australia's most influentual natural feature. Originating at North West Cape, it flows...

Robin Robertson - School of Physical , Environmental and Mathematical Science, University of New South Wales at Australian Defence Force Academy
Ocean mixing is one of the most prominent problems in physical oceanography today.  Mixing maintains the stratification, drives the global overturning circulation, distributes nutrients and larvae...

Geoffrey Vasil - University of Sydney
In spite of outward appearances, many of the partial differential equations used in contemporary fluid dynamics, and the methods used to solve them, contain enough similarities that one may consider...

Lieutenant Daniel Boettger - Operational METOC Centre, Royal Australian Navy
The spatial structure of the semidiurnal internal tide in the Coral and Tasman Seas is characterised using observational data from expendable bathythermographs, Argo floats and unmanned autonomous...
