Many Americans think that Hawai'ians lived in huts prior to colonization. The US actually de-industrialized Hawai'i. Before 1898, Hawai'i already had electricity, mass transit, railroads. Iolani palace had electric lights before the White House.

Working version of wavelet analysis-based unstructured mesh generation. I carry out a wavelet analysis of flow metrics to get the mesh below. Regions with smooth flow are kept coarse, regions with rapid changes are refined.

@olamina It starts a bit slow and then gets weird... I'd love to hear your take on it! :-)

Just watched Miracle Mile. It's a weird little 80s film that starts as a romantic comedy and ends with nuclear war.

Just signed up for the Workshop on New Directions in Numerical Linear Algebra and High Performace Computing

Organised by the Department of Mathematics, The University of Manchester, UK. No registration fee.

"Try Harder!" is a documentary by Debbie Lum, following a group of teenagers as they apply for colleges in an AAPI-majority high school in San Francisco. The film opened the CAAMFest this year.

It's a light-hearted film with several interesting portraits (not only AAPI).

Almost finished with the particle tracker. I can now track across surface and subsurface domains (left) and get the residence time along the paths (right).

We observe that in this case, once a particle exfiltrates, it's quickly advected to the stream and does not re-enter the subsurface.

Academics should keep concepts & theories secret from college administrators who invariably convert them into empty buzzwords.

First "working" version of the particle tracker in the subsurface.

Particles follow the velocity field computed with a Richards solver.

I had to use local time stepping per particle to cope with the large differences in the time scales. There's a lot of infiltration and exfiltration going on.

On a second look, the website looks a bit underdeveloped, so I looked more into it.

The information came through the SIAM mailing list. It was communicated by Markus Gross, who is a computer scientist from Switzerland.

A seemingly more casual workshop with a focus on atmospheric, oceanic, or earth system models and their coupling:

Dürre ist tatsächlich eines der drängendsten Probleme.

Das Video ist eine spannende und eindrucksvolle Darstellung!

Ergänzend dazu möchte ich unsere Dürrestreifen vorstellen.
Ähnlich der blauweißroten Klimastreifen visualisieren sie den Dürreverlauf der Jahre 1881 bis 2020.

They have a lot of bonsai trees at Huntington Botanic Garden. I liked this one the most.

Watched "Paper Moon" yesterday without knowing anything about it and it's a surprisingly beautiful movie.
