20th Berlin Math Day
1 pm - 4 pm
The IMAGINARY MPE modules are part of the Berlin Math Day.
The three interactive stations on glaciers, volcanic ash and tsunamis will be presented, which include a lot of background information on the simulation of these natural phenomena and their mathematical models.
The exhibit “Dune Ash” of the University of Freiburg is a virtual simulation of a volcanic eruption. The calculation of the movement of an ash cloud is made visible for the visitors. “The future development of a glacier” of the Freie Universität Berlin explains how experts create models in order to predict glacier shifting. Finally, the exhibit “Tsunami” is a project from the University of Paris that shows a simulation of the evolution and computation of tsunami waves as well as a historical outline about the formation and the consequences of devastating tsunamis in the past.
