Most graduate students working on multidisciplinary projects focus on a piece of the project of relevance to their major field of study, either applied math or geophysics. Rarely do students in multidisciplinary teams get the whole picture of the problem and hence a full understanding. The goal of this summer school is to attempt to overcome this dual-mode way of approaching science by providing an environment that encourages geoscientists to look seriously at the theory and encourages mathematicians to look more seriously at the physics while learning to communicate effectively with a multidisciplinary team.

The structure of this National Science Foundation sponsored workshop will have dedicate tutorial-style lectures and hands on demonstrations while the remainder of the day will be devoted to team projects. The conference will focus on introducing the students to a variety of topics including:
