The IMA is partnering in Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013, a year-long program to showcase the role of mathematics in developing a
better understanding of dynamic processes affecting Planet Earth, ranging from geophysical systems governing climate to economic and
financial activity.
This initiative has partners across the globe, including the IMA, and aims to promote the essential relevance of mathematics in
planetary issues, raise awareness of mathematics, address global challenges through mathematics, and create a context for
mathematical and interdisciplinary developments.
A flyer for promoting these events is now available for posting in your departments.
