Welcome to the
international MetStröm Conference 2011

Multiple Scales in Fluid Dynamics and Meteorology

June 06 – 10, 2011, Berlin, Germany


In line with the goals and direction of the MetStröm priority research program, this conference will cover contributions from Meteorology, Fluid Dynamics, and Applied Mathematics to the development of model-adaptive as well as grid-adaptive numerical simulation concepts. Of particular interest will be combinations of scale-dependent (mathematical) descriptions of key physical processes with adaptive flow discretization schemes. Specifically, this will include deterministic continuous approaches as well as discrete and/or stochastic closures and their interplay in a full model setting. Besides contributions covering theory and methodology of multiscale meteorological and fluid mechanics modelling, presentations concerning experimental or observational evidence that may support model validation are also welcomed.


The program will include a series of plenary lectures and invited contributions by external experts. We invite regular participants to contribute an oral talk or a poster presentation to the conference.
