[S-TT55] Creating future of solid Earth science with high performance computing (HPC)

Tue. May 24, 2016 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM A02 (APA HOTEL&RESORT TOKYO BAY MAKUHARI)

Convener:*Takane Hori(R&D Center for Earthquake and Tsunami, Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), tsuyoshi ichimura(Earthquake Research Institute,The University of Tokyo), Ryota Hino(Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University), Taro Arikawa(Port and Airport Research Institute), Takamasa Iryo(Kobe University), 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.

4:15 PM - 4:30 PM
