  • Workshop - Workshop on Stochastic Weather Generators
    May 17, 2016 to May 21, 2016


    Vannes, from May 17th to May 21st

    Organization board: Pierre Ailliot, Denis Allard, Anne Cuzol, Ronan Fablet, William Kleiber, Etienne Mémin, Valérie Monbet, Philippe Naveau, Pierre Tandeo, Ying Sun

    How can we reliably predict climate-related risks? Stochastic weather generators give us this ability by simulating sequences of daily weather and climate consistent with specific aspects of climate variability and change. The simulated sequences of meteorological variables (rainfall, wind, temperature,...) are typically used as inputs into complex environmental and ecosystem models. They have a wide range of applications in hydrology, agriculture and environmental management.

    This workshop aims at bringing together a wide range of researchers, practitioners, and graduate students whose work is related to the stochastic modelling of meteorological variables and stochastic weather generators.

Dating back to Kolmogorov's construction of probabilistic diffusions from solutions of partial differential equations in the early 30's and the joint development of potential theory and Markov process in the early 50's, Analysis and Probability theory have never ceased their fruitful interactions, feeded by practical problems from physics, engineering, finance and others. The inaugural conference of the semester Perspectives in Analysis and Probability will provide a panorama of this domain of interaction, by gathering top international researchers at the interface of Analysis, Probability theory and Partial Differential Equations.
