“Synergies in environmental information management – methodological applications regarding space-time variability in the atmosphere” by Dr. Cristian Suteanu

Abstract:

This talk is meant to highlight challenges related to the evaluation of strongly variable space-time patterns, and to present recently developed methodological responses designed to address them.

While the approaches to the handling of streaming data will focus on practical examples regarding atmospheric variables (such as air temperature and wind patterns), the presentation will emphasize some key ideas that have wider applicability. It will be shown that while no single method can exhaustively describe complex natural patterns, the synergic application of distinct methods in conjunction may lead to effectively enhanced outcomes. Scale-bound and scale-free approaches will be discussed, and their coupled effect will be presented with the help of practical examples.

"Air Quality in a Changing Climate -- Without Borders!" By Dr. Aldona Wiacek

Abstract:
This talk will outline the relationships and differences between the distinct environmental problems of air quality and climate change, highlighting the challenges of combining information at local, regional and global scales to improve our understanding of the Atmospheric Environment.
