Abstract: As a snow scientist, the realism of snow deformation in the Disney movie Frozen was a great source of wonder. Behind the magic scenes, UCLA / Disney mathematicians and computer scientists developed a snow model called "Matterhorn" based on the hybrid Eulerian-Lagrangian Material Point Method (MPM) with a simplified snow mechanical model. I was ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Unified modeling of snow and avalanche mechanics using the material point method""

The goal of the project is to create an open-software, open-hardware spectrophotometer that is cheap and reliable. We will present all the tools that we used (Eagle, FreeCad, OpenSCAD, Arduino, ...) and show the experiments that can be achieved with the final product. All the code is available on http://github.com/hackuarium/simple-spectro Read more about "From concept to production: Open spectrophotometer, an interdisciplinary project"

ABSTRACT: The seismic assessment of existing masonry buildings is a difficult task due to the complexity of reliable models, particularly in the case of older non-engineered ones. The qualitative approach is a essential element of knowledge for the interpretation of the seismic behaviour but cannot replace a quantitative security check. As-built information, based on historical ... Read more about "Open issues on seismic assessment of existing masonry buildings: linear vs nonlinear, static vs dynamic, local vs global approaches"

Abstract: The mutualistic interactions between plants and the animals that pollinate them or disperse their seeds can form complex networks involving dozens or hundreds of species. These networks are highly heterogeneous, nested, and built upon weak and asymmetric links among species. From an ecological point of view, such general architectural patterns maximize the number of ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Plant-animal mutualistic networks: the architecture of biodiversity""

Abstract: Decision makers and stakeholders are usually concerned about climate change projections at local spatial scales and fine temporal resolutions. This contrasts with the reliability of climate models, which is typically higher at the global and regional scales, Therefore, there is a demand for advanced methodologies that offer the capability of transferring predictions of climate ...

Abstract: Catchment hydrology deals with the study of flow and transport at the scale of whole watersheds. It is a broad discipline that ranges from the study of precipitation to land as rainfall or snowfall, to its infiltration into the soil and its (long) groundwater journey up to a main stream outlet. Catchments are the ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Challenges and opportunities in catchment hydrology""
