In the News

  • Novel Seismic Software Sheds Light on Earthquake Paths - Earthquakes threaten lives and property all around the globe. Southern California, for example, is a very active region with a high probability of seismic hazards. To better understand the probabilities and paths of earthquakes, scientists experiment in virtual laboratories. R&D, June 6, 2017. See also ACM TechNews, WSSPC News
  • Fault Finding: SoCal Researchers Use GPUs to Detect Earthquake Hazards Coming Our Way - SCEC recently completed CyberShake 15.4 calculation for 336 separate locations in the Los Angeles region involving a large ensemble of earthquakes, and doubled the maximum simulated frequency from 0.5 Hertz to 1 Hertz, therefore also doubled accuracy. As that measurement increases, so does the potential for damage-and the complexity of the simulation. Structures such as buildings and bridges are most vulnerable to damage by seismic waves between 1 and 10 hertz. NVIDIA Blog, Aug 31, 2015.
  • SDSC Researchers Awarded NVIDIA 2015 Global Impact Award - NVIDIA's Global Impact Award is an annual award of $150,000 to researchers who use NVIDIA technology, such as Titan's GPUs, for groundbreaking work that addresses social, humanitarian, and environmental problems. NVIDIA presented Cui and his team at SDSC with the award at the GPU Technology Conference March 17-20 in San Jose, HPCWire, April 9, 2015.
  • Research Shows a Way Forward in Making Earthquake Scenarios More Accurate - SDSC computational scientist Dr. Roten performed ShakeOut simulations with San Andreas fault zone plasticity on Kraken at the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS). His study suggest that the nonlinear behavior in rocks could reduce the previous simulation-based estimates of expected ground motion velocity in the Los Angeles basin during a magnitude-7.8 event on the southern San Andreas Fault by 30 to 70 percent. NICS News, May 13, 2014.
  • SDSC GeoComputing Lab Named Winner of HPC Innovation Excellence Award by IDC - HPGeoC was named a winner of the HPC Innovation Excellence Award by the International Data Corporation (IDC) for developing a highly-scalable computer code that promises to dramatically cut both research times and energy costs in simulating seismic hazards throughout California and elsewhere. UCSD News, June 24, 2014. Appeared also in HPCWire, and IDC Announcement at ISC'13.
  • M8 Visualization Wins Best Visualization Display Award at TeraGrid'11 meeting - TeraGrid News, July 24, 2011
  • 3-D Simulation Predicts LA Will Bear Brunt Of The "Big One" - new M8 movie released during SCEC annual meeting. Discovery News, September 2010.
  • TeraGrid Helps Make Possible Largest-Ever Earthquake Simulation - The scientific results of this massive simulation have allowed us to observe things that we were not able to see in the past. TeraGrid News, September 2010.
  • Preparing for the big one - NCSA works with group led by SCEC to run large earthquake simulations on Blue Waters and characterize seismic hazard risk. NCSA News, April 21, 2010
  • DOE INCITE Award 2010 - Department of Energy awarded scientists from SDSC 27 million core hours to the project titled "Deterministic Simulations of Large Regional Earthquakes at Frequencies up to 2 Hz". UCSD News, February 2, 2010. See also HPC Wire.
