GLADE: Promoting Undergraduate Research in Geodynamics

Undergraduate research in geodynamics was given a boost this past year thanks to the GLADE (Geodynamics of the Lithosphere and Deep Earth) REU program that supported undergraduate research projects in computational geodynamics. The program, organized by Dave Stegman at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, brought together members of the geodynamics community to mentor 6 undergraduates at 6 universities across the nation. The program not only accomplished an impressive amount of research over the summer, but helped undergraduates gain valuable skills, experience, and confidence to further their careers. ... read full article.

Docker for PyLith docker logo.png

Containers virtualize operating systems providing an easy software deployment solution allowing software to compile and run easily from one environment to another. Containers encapsulate all the necessary files and their dependencies in a resource isolated process. An increasingly popular container solution is Docker ( Try it out by installing Docker for PyLith. Instructions can be found on the PyLith wiki.

Social Media

Looking for ways to connect with other computational minded researchers? The Computational Science and Engineering group on facebook is for discussion of the application of computation, modeling, and simulation techniques to computational physics, chemistry, biology, material science, geology, and engineering.

Mathworks @ XSEDE

XSEDE users with allocations may now access MATLAB and other add-on products from MathWorks on XSEDE service provider supercomputers without having to bring their own license. MathWorks has made this solution widely available in order to enable faculty, students and researchers from diverse institutions around the U.S. to more easily access MATLAB and collaborate on each other's resources as well as on XSEDE supercomputers.
