The Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences (IMAGe)

a division of the Computational & Information Systems Laboratory (CISL) brings mathematical models and conceptual tools to bear on fundamental problems in the geosciences and will be a center of activity for the mathematical and geophysical communities. 


IMAGe composition

NCAR-wide projects based in IMAGe


An important part of IMAGe is our Theme-of-the-Year (TOY), a year-long focus on  an aspect of applied mathematics and the geosciences, designed to advance research and education between the mathematical and the geoscience communities. Typically our TOY sponsors a series of workshops or schools along with a visitor program, coordinates with NCAR science groups and partners with other mathematics institutes.
