The new feature of xMCA, is the possibility to perform complex PCA and complex MCA, which are particularly suitable, when the covariance-describing patterns do not rest statically in space, but rather behave like a cyclic wave propagating in space.
Climate change is here today, affecting us and impacting our lives. “But unless there is an immediate, rapid and large-scale reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, limiting warming to +1.5°C by 2100 would be out of reach” assures Valérie Masson-Delmotte, a Climate scientist at the Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de l’environnement (LSCE). To better react, it is worth having an overview of the actual evolution of climate change.
Modelling the Earth System and the dynamics of complex systems for understanding climate change – The Nobel Prize in Physics 2021
This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics recognized that our knowledge of Earth’s Climate, one outstanding example of a complex system, rests on a solid scientific foundation of physics, mathematics and complex systems science.
Our CAFE Early Stage Researchers, Nikos, Pedro, and Xinjia, participated in the 2021 ASP Summer Colloquium organized by NCAR. In this blogpost they share their thoughts and present some of their findings in the projects they participated in.
On November 27, 2020, Niclas Rieger, Iago Perez, Noémie Ehstand, and I, Meriem Krouma, participated as early-stage researchers of the CAFE project in the European Researchers’ Night. Through this blog, I want to talk about my experience and the collaboration with my colleagues in such an event. The idea was to talk about climate change, weather extremes, and their impact on daily life. The event was to be given in front of children and online: a real challenge!
What is common about an epidemic, a forest fire and the mobile game Chain Reaction is how the condition of one element influences the other surrounding elements which were in contact with it in some form. Computer science has a popular algorithm named the burning tree algorithm to track this kind of spread.
