Transcript of NP3.7 Multiscale modeling and analysis of environmental proc


Multiscale modeling and analysis of environmental processes (co-organized)

Environmental processes often span spatial and temporal scales covering different orders of magnitude. The session is oriented in collecting studies relevant to understanding multiscale (possibly fractal) aspects of these processes, in proposing adequate modeling tools and is especially aimed at studies emphasizing the interaction between environmental processes occurring at different scales.
We also aim at contributions emphasizing the multiscale nature of Earth structures, relevant to environmental processes.
In this context, contributions in numerical and analytical models that cover the field of: geodynamics, volcanology, seismology, earth critical zone (i.e. soil hydrology, landslide processes) and lower atmosphere are welcome.


Interconnection between different disciplines is fundamental to reach a proper multidisciplinary approach to environmental study.
Forecast of environmental behaviour
Why this session ?
Environmental Models vary in complexity on the base of Knowledge fields (K1,K2...) ...
(Hoosbeek and Bryant, 1992; Bouma et al., 1998; Manna et. al, 2010)

Model Complexity increase
Increase in the degree computational
Moreover, the environmental model approaches vary in space and time...
Different aspect of environmental behaviour can analyze through different numerical models in which the processes involved are the same, but described and treated in different way.
Knowledge of processes involved
Spatial scale
Temporal scale
...and generally the approaches applied depend from spatial and temporal data availability
What is the aim of session?
Why this session is important in the real life?
Different disciplines cover parts of others..
(e.g. earth critical zone)
Crop science
....we have to improve the interconnection in areas of overlap
Actions on territory
(Decision makers at different scale, EU, National, Regional, local...)
The models are applied to produce applicative responses..
and sometimes they forget part of system that they describe
Improve the sharing of knowledge between the environmental sectors involved in the modelling of environmental processes
Than our mission is:
as the case of soil system in the methodology applied to simulate the climate change impacts on crop production...
The abstract submissions and the supporting to the session are welcome

Invariant Scaling of processes
Sometimes the interdisciplinarity is due only to the use of same methods or field, remote and proximal sensors..
