International Conference of 2nd Hydrology delivers Earth System Science to Society

홍진규

2010-06-22 ~ 2010-06-25 |University of Tokyo

Purposes and Objectives During the 1st HESSS at 2007, we had attempted to ascertain the gaps between the needs of society and the services of hydrology community. Estimation and reduction of uncertainty in simulations were indentified as key leverage points along with an appropriate use of observational datasets in validation and data assimilation. The 2nd HESSS international conference brings three unique communities together to bridge such gaps with a shared vision of a sustainable and desirable world. Our objective is to establish practical protocols and frameworks to promote more effective collaborations among the research communities of hydrological modeling, field observations, remote sensing in the context of sustainability science. To highlight the core issues, values and implications, all the sessions consist of stimulating keynote speeches and panel discussions by leading scientists and enthusiastic young researchers. As a true test bed for community level collaboration, new frameworks such as the Global Soil Wetness Project phase 3 (GSWP3) and HydroEastAsia will be launched as the outcome of the conference. We invite you to join us and contribute oral or poster presentations and to discussions. The natural environmental condition, such as precipitation, air temperature, humidity and radiation, varies continuously
with a wide spectrum of temporal scales from seconds to years and decades. Such variations are subject to slow
and fast changes of solar radiation, passages of a front and pressure systems, and frequency of precipitation. In the
Asian region, the monsoon system is driving temporal variability in the natural environment and consequently it makes
impact on carbon and water cycles on from local, regional to continental and global scales. Terrestrial ecosystems in
Asia cover wide spectrum of biomes and climate zones and represent many vegetation types. In particular, due to
rapid changes of land cover and large population pressure for economic growth, the carbon and water cycles of the
terrestrial ecosystems in Asia have undergone dramatic changes over the past several decades, leading to potentially
significant influences on global climate change. Under future global warming scenario, seasonal precipitation cycle
can be amplified in the Asian region. There is, however, the lack of our understanding on the interplay between the
Asian monsoon and terrestrial carbon and water exchanges that hinders us from better understanding of carbon and
water cycles and its impact on climate change. Using the ecosystem models, my presentation will briefly discuss
major challenges in modeling ecosystem carbon and water exchanges in Monsoon Asia and their interplay with the
Asian monsoon.

Nanofluids and biosensors 11:10?13:00 Michael Feig Applications of Implicit Solvent and practical issues with MD A major feature of biological science in the 21st century will be its transition from phenomenological and deive
science to quantitative science. Revolutionary opportunities have emerged for theoretically driven advances in
biological research. Rigorous, quantitative, and atomic scale deion of complex biological systems is a grand
challenge. Under physiological conditions, most biological processes occur in water, which consists of 65-90%
human cell weight. Explicit deion of biomolecules and their aqueous environment, including solvent, co-solutes,
and mobile ions, is prohibitively expensive. Therefore, multiscale analysis is an attractive and sometimes
indispensable approach. In a series of lectures, I will discuss a number of multiscale models for biomolecular
systems.
In Lecture One, I will discuss Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) equation based implicit solvent model. The PB model treats
the solvent as a macroscopic continuum while admitting a microscopic atomic deion for the biomolecule. It has
been widely used for electrostatic solvation analysis, pH and pKa estimation, electrostatic map, electrostatic force
calculation, and molecular dynamics. The derivation of the PB equation from the free energy functional will be
discussed. Electrostatic force expressions will be given.
In Lecture Two, I will further discuss a mathematical interface approach for obtaining highly accurate solutions of the
Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) equation. A solvent-solute interface is assumed in the implicit solvent models. Rigorous
solution of the PB equation requires the enforcement of interface jump conditions. Due to the complexity of the
biomolecular interfaces, it is very challenging to implement the interface jump conditions. A matched interface and
boundary (MIB) method has been developed in my group to obtain second-order accurate electrostatic potentials for
protein and other biomolecules. A Green function approach has also been developed to overcome the difficulty of
handling singular charges in the PB model.
In Lecture Three, I will introduce a differential geometry based multiscale solvation model. This model utilizes
differential geometry theory of surfaces for coupling microscopic and macroscopic scales at an equal footing. The
biomolcule of interest is described by discrete atomic and quantum mechanical variables. While the aquatic
environment is described by continuum hydrodynamic variables. I will derive coupled geometric flow and Poisson-
Boltzmann (PB) equations for describing biomolecular surfaces and electrostatic potentials, respectively. The free
energies of biomolecular surface, mechanical work, solvent-solute interface and electrostatic interactions are
optimized in this model. Another multiscale model includes the quantum mechanics deion of the electron density
of (part of) the solute molecule in the salvation analysis. This is needed in refining charge force fields and in
chemical binding analysis.
Applications are considered to biomolecular solvation analysis, virus surface construction and proton transport in
membrane proteins.
In Lecture Four, I will discuss the two different formulations of the multiscale salvation model. One is the Eulerian
formulation and the other is the Lagrangian formulation. The latter has a few utilities/advantages. First, it provides an
essential basis for biomolecular visualization, surface electrostatic potential map and visual perception of
biomolecules. Additionally, it is consistent with the conventional setting of implicit solvent theories and thus, many
existing theoretical algorithms and computational software packages can be directly employed. Finally, the Lagrangian
representation does not need to resort to artificially enlarged van der Waals radii as required by the Eulerian
representation in solvation analysis. However, it may encounter difficulty in surface merging and break up. For this
reason, the Eulerian formulation is used in practical computations. I will discuss inter-conversion of these two
formalisms.
In Lecture Five, I will introduce more differential geometry based multiscale models. One of these models is originated
from microfluidic and nanofluidic systems, which require the deion of solvation, fluid flows, and molecular
mechanics. We derive the coupled geometric flow equation, Navier-Stokes (NS) equation, generalized Poisson-
Boltzmann (PB) equation and molecular dynamics to describe the dynamics of nanofluidic systems. Finally, we
discuss models for the analysis of nano-biosensors. The Nernst-Planck equation is incorporated into our fluid-
electro-and geometric systems to describe the drift and diffusion of ions over the nanopores. Applications will be
discussed to protein folding, ion channels, micro/nanofluidic devices, and nano-bio sensors.

grid size on the simulated SEP. In particular, we focus on the nonlinear effect of spatial heterogeneity in atmospheric
conditions on the simulation of surface fluxes in the mesoscale model by testing their scale-invariance from a tower
footprint to regional scales. The test domain was a homogeneous shortgrass prairie in the central part of the Tibetan
Plateau with an eddy-covariance flux tower at the center. We found that 1) soil evaporation controls the model
differences of the SEP and 2) the spatial variability resulting from changing distribution of clouds and precipitation in
the model domain affected radiative forcing at the ground surface, thereby altering the partitioning of surface fluxes.
Consequently, due to increasing spatial variability in atmospheric conditions, the results of the mesoscale model did
not produce convergent estimates of surface fluxes with increasing grid sizes. Our finding demonstrates that an
atmospheric model can underestimate surface fluxes in regional scale not necessarily due to intrinsic model
inaccuracy (e.g., inaccurate parameterization) but due to scale-dependent nonlinear effect of spatial variability in
atmospheric conditions.

biophysical parameters on to find influential input parameters in the simulation of gross primary productivity (GPP) and
ecosystem respiration (Re) was investigated for in two typical ecosystems inof Korea. For this test, we employed the
whole-year observation of Using the eddy-covariance fluxes measured in 2006observations of eddy fluxes, then we
evaluated the performance of the JULES in two major plant functional types in Korea: at two KoFlux sites: (1) a
deciduous forest in complex terrain in Gwangneung and (2) a farmland with heterogeneous mosaic patches in
Haenam. Our analysis showed that the simulated GPP and Re were most sensitive to leaf nitrogen concentration and
wood biomass parameter at for the deciduous forest canopyin Gwangneung. At For the mixed farmland in
Haenamcanopy, the modeled GPP was most sensitive to soil moisture content at saturation, whereas the modeled Re
was most sensitive to leaf nitrogen concentration. At both sites, the model significantly overestimated both GPP and
Re when the default values of input parameters were adopted. If we cConsidering the fact that the observed leaf
nitrogen concentration wais only about 60% of its default value, the significant portion of the model’s overestimation
can be attributed to such a discrepancy in the contrast of input parameters. Our finding suggests demonstrates that
