View a Google Hangout interview with Hans Kaper and Hans Engler, authors of the book, Mathematics and Climate.
The book was published by SIAM in October 2013, and has been honored by the Atmospheric Science Librarians International (ASLI) as the best book of 2013 in the fields of meteorology, climatology, and atmospheric sciences.
How can mathematical and statistical tools help us understand the dynamics of the Earth’s climate system? What are conceptual climate models and how do they aid in predicting future climate? What should mathematicians and scientists do to reinforce the urgency with which we should be tackling one of the biggest problems of our time?
The authors, who are both professors in the department of mathematics and statistics at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., answered these and many more questions about their book. Watch the interview!
