Description This workshop will expose students in the geosciences, ecology, and mathematics to multidisciplinary science through a focus on estimating the sources and sinks of carbon for the Earth system. One goal is to train the next generation of researchers to work within a multidisciplinary science team that combines geoscientists, ecologists, applied mathematicians, and statisticians. Participants will obtain an overview of this problem but also some specific skills in tackling inverse problems and working with geophysical and biogeochemical models.
