[edit] SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences

[edit] Welcome to SIAG GS

The SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences provides an interactive environment wherein modelers concerned with problems of the geosciences can share their problems with algorithm developers, applied mathematicians, numerical analysts, and other scientists. Topics of interest include flow in porous media, multiphase flows, phase separation, wave propagation, combustion, channel flows, global and regional climate modeling, reactive flows, sedimentation and diagenesis, and rock fracturing.

[edit] How to join SIAG GS

Membership in SIAM activity groups is open only to SIAM members. You can join SIAG GS when you initiate or renew your membership with SIAM. If you are a SIAM member interested in the application of mathematics to geosciences, please join us. We would like to increase the number of student members in the SIAG. If you advise graduate students that are not yet member of SIAG Geosciences, please let them know that they can join the activity group for free.

[edit] SIAG GS Conferences

The highlight of our activities is our biennial conference. During these Conferences, we award the SIAG/Geosciences Career Prize and the SIAG/Geosciences Early Career Prize. The activity group also maintains a membership directory and an electronic mailing list.

[edit] SIAM Student chapters

SIAM now has over 90 SIAM student chapters, see Many of the chapters organize seminars. If you are near one of these chapters, either through work or through travel, consider volunteering to give a seminar on your research in Geosciences. The chapters would be delighted to host you.

We can assist in coordinating such talks. Please send an email to Inga Berre if you can volunteer. Graduate student members: please feel free to volunteer yourself too.

[edit] SIAG Geosciences Webinars

SIAM Activity Group Webinars started in October 2021 and generally happen the second Thursday of the month @ 11:00 Central U.S/ noon Eastern U.S./ 18:00 Central European time. Register for the upcoming webinar here. The webinars are recorded and posted on SIAM YouTube Channel.
