AGU Chapman/ EGS Richardson Memorial Conference

Scaling and multifractal processes
Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques de Carg se
10-17 September 1993

Conference description

A third conference to develop confrontation between theories and
experiments on scaling/multifractal behaviour of geophysical fields.
Subjects covered will include climate, clouds, earthquakes, atmospheric
and ocean dynamics, tectonics, precipitation, hydrology, the solar cycle
and volcanoes.

Areas of focus will include new methods of data analysis (especially for
the reliable estimation of multifractal and scaling exponents), applied to
rapidly growing data bases from in situ networks and remote sensing.

The corresponding modeling, prediction and estimation techniques will also
be emphasized as will the current debates about stochastic and
deterministic dynamics, fractal geometry and multifractals, self-organized
criticality and multifractal fields.

Mini-course: on the 10 and 11 September 1993 there will be an optional
short courses on multifractals (multifractal processes, multifractal phase
transitions, Generalized Scale InvarianceI).

The conference will be held at the Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques de
Cargse (France). Carg se is a pleasant little village of considerable charm
and historic interest located 50 km north of Ajaccio, on the west coast of
Corsica. The Institute itself is situated by the sea, about 2 km south of
the village.

A group ticket for 60 seats has been organized on regular flight from
Paris (Orly West) to Ajaccio on September 10 at 11:55 and back again
on September 17 at 16:00. One way price is 665 FF. Reservations are
binding 14 days before departure. Otherwise there are regular flights
to Ajaccio from Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, London, Frankfort, Munchen,
Roma, MilanoI. There are ferries from Marseille, Nice and Toulon, and from
Genova to Bastia (and then train to Ajaccio). Between Ajaccio and Cargese
special bus services are arranged on 10/17 September (80 FF one way).
Otherwise you may take a taxi (420 FF one way).

Lodging is available in the village of Cargese, either in hotels (from 250
FF per day) or in flats (from 800 FF per week). There is also, as well as
camping available (20 FF per day, including breakfast).

Breaks & Meals
Coffee/tea/fresh juices is served twice a day during the breaks lunch meals
are served at the Center). Both services are included in the conference
fee. Evening meals can be taken at different restaurants of the village
(100-130 FF).

Social Events
Besides hiking, swimming and snorkeling in the Menasina bay of the center,
an ice breaker reception, a Corsican barbecue, an excursion to the
oceanographic centre as well as a boat excursion along the multifractal
coast of Corsica is foreseen.

Contributions should be summarized as abstracts in the "extended" EGS
format (16.5 cm following the abstract should include the name and full
address (inc. fax, e-mail, etc.) of the speaker, a statement concerning the
preference for oral or poster presentation and the equipment in addition to

All abstracts will be included in the programme booklet, which will be
distributed to the participants. The organizers intend to publish a book
proceedings afterwards.

Conference Fee
The fees for the conference (12-17 September) are $320, -regular and
$180 -for students. The fees for the two-day mini-course
(10 and 11 September) are $80, -regular and $ 40, - for students,
respectively. These fees include the conference material, the programme
booklet, the refreshments during the breaks, lunch and the reception.
Fees can be paid at the conference or in advance to the EGS Office by
Eurocheque, bank transfer (Deutsche Bank, Sort Code 260 700 72,
Account 05_11 33 222) credit card (American Express,
Eurocard/Mastercard/Access). Financial support may be awarded upon specific
request (a limited number of grants are available)

The conference will be limited to 80 participants. Pre-registration

Tribute to Lewis Fry Richardson
With this conference the European geophysical community wishes to pay
tribute to Lewis Fry Richardson, on the 40th aniversary of his death.
He was a pioneer of scaling ideas and fractality. He was the first
to suggest numerical integration of the equations of motion of the
atmosphere, to introduce anondimensional number associated with fluid
convective stability (the Richardson number), to suggest that turbulent
cascades are the fundamental mechanism for driving the atmosphere
(large eddies break up into smaller ones), and as a founder of cascade
and scaling theories of atmospheric dynamics, to introduce the Richardson
dividers method of successively increasing the resolution of fractal
His pioneering book on "Weather prediction by numerical processes" appeared
in 1922.
