Abstract : The workshop was devoted to several of the most active topics in this area and, in particular, covered: Probabilistic models in geophysics including hierarchical models for geophysical structures, homogenization of random elastic media, propagation of seismic waves, statistical methods for estimation of parameters of seismic waves, prediction problems for seismic phenomena and other geophysical fields. Modern probabilistic and statistical methods in oceanography and atmospheric sciences including: probabilistic and statistical mechanical models of large scale ocean circulation, random fields and stochastic partial differential equations techniques, waves in the ocean in presence of random topography and random forcing, random field modeling of salinity, temperature and other physical fields, weak turbulence. Prediction problems. Distribution functions for vorticity, velocity and dissipation rates. Intermittency and structure functions. Singularities in Euler equations and their relation to turbulence. Turbulent cascades and martingales.
