Workshop III: Data Assimilation, Uncertainty Reduction, and Optimization for Subsurface Flow
ID
832078
Dates
22 May 2017 - 26 May 2017
Location
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract
There are major computational challenges and substantial uncertainties associated with model inversion and performance optimization in oil field applications. As production and (in some cases) 4D seismic and electromagnetic data are collected, there are inevitably discrepancies between the predicted and actual reservoir responses. This drives the need for data assimilation, usually referred to as history matching in petroleum engineering. History matching involves the solution of a computationally demanding, highly ill-conditioned, inverse problem. Key complications that arise are the uncertain nature of the geology (and thus the need to "properly" sample the posterior distribution), combined with the need to retain geological realism in history-matched reservoir descriptions. Additional complexity enters as a result of the unknown rock-physics quantities needed to integrate multiphysics data sets. Applications received by Monday, March 27, 2017, will receive fullest consideration.

Conference on Classical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics: Modeling, Reduction, and Simulation
ID
881150
Dates
26 Jun 2017 - 28 Jun 2017
Location
Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, United States
Abstract
This conference will bring together applied mathematicians at various stages of their careers as well as leading engineers and geophysicists. The goal is to exchange experiences and ideas necessary for the development of novel strategies to tackle challenging turbulent flows arising in engineering and geophysical fluid dynamics. These strategies will include effective analytic and data-driven dimension reduction that is essential for the mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of these turbulent flows. A partial list of topics that we intend to cover at the conference includes: modeling of turbulent flows in climate and engineering applications, state-of-the-art reduced order modeling techniques and stochastic parameterization techniques, the associated numerical implementations, and usage in different contexts such as flow control, instabilities, bifurcation analysis and transition to turbulence, predictability and prediction, and uncertainty quantification.

Habitable Worlds 2017: A System Science Workshop
ID
847591
Start date
13 Nov 2017
Location
Laramie, Wy, United States
Abstract
The Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS), a NASA research coordination network dedicated to the study of planetary habitability, is pleased to announce a five-day conference on "Habitable Worlds 2017: A System Science Workshop" from Nov 13-17, 2017 in Laramie, WY. The field of exoplanets is currently at the cusp of a watershed moment in finding life on other worlds, propelled by the discoveries of habitable zone terrestrial planets in both ground and space-based surveys, and the potential for future telescopes to characterize the atmospheres of some of these rocky planets. Preparing for such a singular moment needs a diverse community, including Earth scientists, heliophysicists, planetary scientists, and astrophysicists.

Planetary Boundary Layers in Atmospheres, Oceans, and Ice on Earth and Moons
ID
857015
Dates
02 Apr 2018 - 22 Jun 2018
Location
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, Santa Bar, United States
Abstract
The exchange of energy, mass, and other important quantities across interfaces is a fundamental physical problem spanning all of the natural sciences. Boundary and interfacial layers often exert controlling influence on these exchanges. Interfacial and boundary layers are often characterized by a change of phase, and through spray, bubbles, melting/freezing, and other vigorous mixing or forcing, the coexistence of multiple phases can become important. This program will focus on key questions that illustrate the generality of the interaction phenomenon and facilitate the synthesis of ideas and techniques from different disciplines.
