CIG '16  

CIG'16 is just weeks away. This community-wide meeting, Interdisciplinary Directions in Computational Geophysics, will be held on the campus of UC Davis. Plenary sessions will be held from June 20-22 with tutorials before, during and after.  Remember to check the website for the latest logistics, tutorial instructions, as well as the schedule of events. List your poster and sign up for a lightning talk here. Use #CIG16UCD on Twitter for up-to-date news and announcements during the meeting.

Research Highlight     

THE SPECTRAL AMPLITUDE OF STELLAR CONVECTION AND ITS SCALING IN THE HIGH-RAYLEIGH-NUMBER REGIME


In spring of 2013, CIG initiated code development of Rayleigh, a new HPC pseudospectral code for studying spherical dynamos such as those that occur in the planetary and stellar interiors. This effort is lead by Nick Featherstone with CIG’s Geodynamo Working Group. Featherstone and Hindman (2016) present the first results fromRayleigh with a series of three-dimensional stellar convection simulations designed to examine how the amplitude and spectral distribution of convective flows are established within a star's interior... read full article. N. Featherstone ...

CIG III to begin!

I am pleased to announce that CIG-III will be supported by the NSF’s Geoinformatics program, with support from Advanced Cyberinfrastructure. Over the last decade our geodynamics community has grown and developed, pushed the scientific and computational frontiers of geophysics, and become a model for other scientific communities... continue reading - Louise Kellogg

Governance

Welcome to our new member institutions and member representatives: University of Memphis, Eunseo Choi and Portland State University, Maxwell Rudolph. CIG is 76 members strong.

2016 XSEDE Allocation Awarded

CIG was recently awarded resources on  XSEDE for high-end computational resources, visualization, and storage. The resources are available through our community allocations from 2016-04-01 through 2017-03-31. CIG maintains community allocations for researchers to perform small-scale research tests and benchmarks with the goal of helping researchers obtain their own XSEDE allocations.  See our website to request an account ... XSEDE.
