MCS - CIG - CSDMS Webinar Series on
The Role of Computational Geoscience in the Predictive Assessment of Plate Boundary Systems and Hazards
Computational geoscience plays a fundamental role in understanding the multi-physics, multi-scale problems inherent in plate boundary systems. There are a range of challenges involved, from uncertainties about the fundamental governing relationships to the implementation of solution strategies on supercomputers. MCS-RCN, CIG, and CSDMS team up for this January 2021 webinar series, highlighting a group of outstanding speakers. They will discuss two worked examples that illustrate some of the pathways of how high-performance computing can be used to make headway on challenging problems in solid Earth geoscience.
Each of our two webinar short series includes three presentations, covering background and introduction, theoretical and computational challenges, and science insights, respectively. Each webinar consists of a 40 min presentation and 20 min for discussion.
We hope this format will serve to foster community-wide discussion about the science problems, and how computational geoscience can play a role in future science, education, and infrastructure-driven activities. The two series will be held January 12-14, 2021, on A) Induced Seismicity and Fault System Dynamics, and January 19-21, 2021, on B) Surface Processes and Tectonics, with details and sign up links below.
