Student project on Tipping points wins first prize in Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 competition

As always I am slow in posting what’s happening in the lab.

ImageThree undergraduate students, one from Physics and two from Math department, who worked with me during the summer of 2013 did a very cool project. They built a physical model to demonstrate the principles underlying early warning signals of tipping points. They submitted this project to a all India level competition organized by TIFR-CAM to celebrate the Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013. In Nov 2013, they were given first prize for their work at the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum, Bangalore.

On the right is a picture of students posing with their physical model! Congratulations to Nikunj Goel, Athmanathan and Sriram (left to right) for their excellent work and for winning the prize.
