Interest in research in the mathematics and modeling of physical processes in the geosciences has been increasing over the past few decades. Recognition of the importance to the nation and the world of studying and understanding problems such as groundwater contamination, air pollution, weather prediction, maximizing production of existing oil reservoirs, and ocean hydrodynamics has been an important force driving this interest.

The study of these problems requires interdisciplinary collaboration and the merging of mathematical modeling with experiments and theory. By bringing together engineers, mathematicians, computational scientists, and other researchers working in industry, government laboratories, and universities, meaningful progress can be made in understanding and predicting the complex physical phenomena in the geosciences.
