Convener:*Takane Hori(R&D Center for Earthquake and Tsunami, Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), Yoshiyuki Kaneda(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), Muneo Hori(Earthquake Research Institute, University of Tokyo), Ryota Hino(International Research Institute of Disaster Science, Tohoku University), Taro Arikawa(Port and Airport Research Institute), Masaru Todoriki(Center for Integrated Disaster Information Research / Earthquake Research Institute, The University of Tokyo), Chair:Takane Hori(R&D Center for Earthquake and Tsunami, Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology)
In this session we will explore the scientific and social issues that can be addressed by Earth scientists over the next 10-20 years using high performance computing (HPC). We will discuss future problems and prospects in the development of solid Earth science, especially for simulation technology in earthquake and tsunami disaster mitigation, new methods for big data analyses of seismic waves and crustal deformation obtained by high-density observation networks, construction of multi-scale solid Earth models, and so on. We welcome both earth scientists working on computational, observational and theoretical aspects of the physics of the solid Earth, and specialists on disaster mitigation, to discuss the role of HPC in solving future problems in this field.
