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.

Chief Petty Officer Richard Tolton - Operational METOC Centre, Royal Australian Navy
As technology continues to evolve the modern defence force, the environment remains the one factor that cannot be controlled, merely understood. Nowhere is this truer in the ocean. Beneath the...

Maxim Nikurashin - Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania
Mesoscale eddies are the most energetic motions in the ocean, but the fate of their energy in the ocean remains poorly understood. Eddy generation in the Southern Ocean tends to be enhanced near...

Paulina Cetina Heredia - ARC Center for Excellence in Climate System Science, University of New South Wales
  Climate change is projected to increase ocean temperatures and modify circulation patterns, with potential widespread implications on planktonic larvae of marine organisms. Understanding the impact...

Ziyu Xiao - School of Physical , Environmental and Mathematical Science, University of New South Wales at Australian Defence Force Academy
This study focused on isolating and determining the magnitude of different forcing mechanisms (such as tides, winds, river discharges and horizontal salinity gradients) responsible for temporal...

Zhi Gang Lai - School of Marine Sciences, Sun Yat-Sen University, China
The Unstructured-grid Finite-volume Coastal Ocean Model (FVCOM) has become a very popular numerical tool in recent years. In this talk, the basic features of FVCOM will be introduced with some...

Andreas Klocker - University of Tasmania
A high-resolution ocean model and satellite-based observations are used to understand the closeinteraction of waves and turbulence in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). This analysisreveals the...

Andrew Kiss - UNSW Canberra (ADFA)
I'll talk about some recent work (in collaboration with Leela Frankcombe, CCRC UNSW) on the origins of time-dependence in ocean circulation, in particular in western boundary currents (WBCs) such as...

Shane Keating - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics
Mixing by ocean eddies on scales of 10-50 km plays a key role in biogeochemical processes, frontal dynamics, and tracer transport in the upper ocean. However, our understanding of these scales is...

Stuart Anderson - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics
It is a common feature among remote sensing technologies that very considerable progress can be made with relatively simple physical and mathematical models. This is often fortuitous, as without...

Zahir Hussain - Manchester Metropolitan University
This talk will provide a mathematical description of the onset of counter-rotating spiral vortices observed for boundary-layer flow over a family of slender rotating cones in quiescent fluid....
