MS13: Mathematical Solutions to Combat Environmental Challenges
Modern 21st century life places a constant, daily strain on our fragile environment. From global problems such as the growing consumption of fossil fuels or the increase in air pollution to everyday issues such as the daily commute to work or the use of plastic bags for grocery shopping, our environment is continually under threat.
In this minisymposium, we bring together researchers working in a range of fields to discuss challenges facing the environment. We show how applied mathematical and statistical techniques can be used to assist in the development of eco-friendly tech solutions, predict climate trends and to better understand processes associated with the environment. We cover topics from interdisciplinary areas such as renewable energy, carbon capture and climate forecasting in the context of industrial applied mathematics.
