In brief...

The Institut des Sciences de la Terre d’Orléans is a research laboratory in Earth Science dedicated to the external envelops of the Earth from the upper mantle to the atmosphere. Our studies focus on the heat and mass transfers at the interface between the mantle and the crust as well as between the crust and the atmosphere. Application domains of our research activities include the mineral, energy and water primary resources, the volcanic hazards, and the environmental impacts of anthropic activities.

Balance laws in fluid mechanics, geophysics, biology (theory, computation, and application)

The balance principle appears as a fundamental modeling tool in a wide range of applications. In realistic applications, such as gravitational flows, hydrology, biological complex fluids, it results in highly nonlinear partial differential equations, including stiff source terms and nonconservative products, and involves multiple time and space scales. This leads to serious challenges, from both the mathematical modeling and numerical viewpoints. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from various domains, to discuss recent progress in these directions, and foster interactions between disciplines to tackle new challenges.
