We are pleased to announce the release of the geodynamo simulation code Calypso 1.0.0. This is the first release of Calypso through Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG).
Calypso is a program package of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) simulations in a rotating spherical shell for geodynamo problems. This package consists of the simulation program, preprocessing program, post processing program to generate field data for visualization programs, and several small utilities. The simulation program runs on parallel computing systems using MPI and OpenMP parallelization.
Currently, Calypso 1.0.0 supports the following features and capabilities:
You can download the source code and manual from:
Detailed installation instructions for compiling and running Calypso are in the user manual as well as several examples and background material. If you have any questions regarding Calypso or its operation, please contact the authors through the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
