[MGI22-P06] Mantle convection simulations from technical viewpoints

*Masanori Kameyama1, Takehiro Miyagoshi2, Takatoshi Yanagisawa2, Masaki Ogawa3 (1.Geodynamics Research Center, Ehime University, 2.Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, 3.University of Tokyo, Komaba)

Keywords:terrestrial planets, mantle convection, numerical simulation

In this presentation, we will discuss (a rather personal view of) the possible directions of the advanced numerical studies of mantle dynamics in concert with the progress of high-performance computing in the next era. We will start with a brief overview of the research targets and outcrops of the numerical modelings of mantle convection to date from a viewpoint of geosciences. Then we will discuss the scientific goals which the mantle dynamics researchers are to tackle with in coming years, together with the technical issues in terms of both software and hardware developments.
