January 2021 - 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 teamed up for this January 2021 webinar series, highlighting a group of outstanding speakers. They discussed 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.
