Research in the fundamental understanding of physical processes related to the earth has seen increasing interest over the past few decades. The effects on the global economy and well-being of air and water pollution, earthquakes and weather events, and energy production are some of the forces driving this research.

Geoscience research requires interdisciplinary collaboration and the merging of mathematical modeling with experiments and theory. By bringing together engineers, mathematicians, computational scientists, and other researchers working in industry, government laboratories, and universities, meaningful progress can be made in understanding and predicting the complex physical phenomena in the geosciences.

The conference will be held jointly with the Ninth SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing, with overlapping sessions planned to encourage interaction among participants of both meetings.

And in conjunction with the conference, at the same location on March 21...
