Third AGM Meeting: Stochastic Transport in the Upper Ocean

The third meeting will be devoted to Stochastic Transport in the Upper Ocean (STUOD). The STUOD project is funded by an ERC Synergy Grant. It involves three institutions (Imperial College London, INRIA Rennes, and Ifremer, Brest). The STUOD project aims to create a complete pipeline for the analysis of upper ocean dynamics: problem formulation, mathematical modelling, rigorous analysis, parallel computational software and implementation, performance evaluation, data analysis and data assimilation, with improvements achieved by repetitions of this cycle. The STUOD endeavour draws on the team’s combined expertise in mathematics, physics, scientific computing and oceanography to chart pathways to impact ranging from theory to applications. More details of the STUOD project’s aims and its recent advances toward achieving its succession of goals may be found on the STUOD website (link here).


The third AGM meeting is envisioned as a showcase of the STUOD project which will bring together representatives of the UK community of mathematicians who are interested in stochastic modelling, high-performance computations of fluid flows relevant to satellite oceanic observations, data management, data analysis and data assimilation. Mathematical advances will develop the needed aspects of data-driven modelling of fluid dynamics in a rigorous theoretical framework. Topics will include stochastic geometric mechanics, stochastic computational algorithms for fluid dynamics, data analysis via Koopman spectral methods and machine learning, as well as stochastic data assimilation using particle filters.


The date of the meeting, timetable, participants, speakers, and further details will be posted here.
