Impressions on the MPE Day by Ehrhard Behrends
More than 100 scientific societies, universities, research institutes, and organizations all over the world have banded together to dedicate 2013 as a special year for the Mathematics of Planet Earth.
Our planet is the setting for dynamic processes of all sorts, including the geophysical processes in the mantle, the continents, and the oceans, the atmospheric processes that determine our weather and climates, the biological processes involving living species and their interactions, and the human processes of finance, agriculture, water, transportation, and energy. The challenges facing our planet and our civilization are multidisciplinary and multifaceted, and the mathematical sciences play a central role in the scientific effort to understand and to deal with these challenges.

The MPE Exhibition is now on line. It was launched at UNESCO on MPE Day, March 5, 2013. Part of it comes from the modules of the MPE competition.
The MPE2013-Simons Public Lecture Series will take place at nine locations around the world. Each lecturer is a leading expert who will explain how the mathematical sciences play a significant role in understanding and solving some of Planet Earth’s important problems. Our community’s best expositors and champions will cover a diverse range of topics in lectures aimed for a public audience.
CMS MPE Lecture Series
The Canadian Mathematical Society, in collaboration with the Canadian institutes AARMS, CRM, the Fields Institute and PIMS, is sponsoring a cross-Canada series of lectures for MPE 2013. Eleven of the lectures will be for the general public and the rest for a scientific audience.
MPE2013 thanks the National Science Foundation and the Simons Foundation for their support of MPE2013 activities.
