The Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG) is a community-driven organization that advances Earth science by developing and disseminating software for geophysics and related fields.


We aspire to accelerate the understanding of the dynamical properties of the Earth and Earth-like systems by providing innovative methods, resources, and technologies enabling research from core to crust, and beyond.

We provide leadership in computational geophysics and drive paradigm shifts and fundamental changes in geoscience by addressing challenges in multi-disciplinary science and creating a broad-based community whose research and pedagogy are fundamentally based in modeling and computation.
