  1. 2022 Poroelastic Implementation in PyLith: Gateway to Multiphysics

    13 May 2022 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Robert L Walker

    Thursday May 12, 2022 @ 2P PDT Poroelastic Implementation in PyLith: Gateway to Multiphysics Robert Walker, SUNY Buffalo PyLith, a community, open-source code (https://geodynamics.org/resources/pylith) for modeling quasi-static and dynamic crustal deformation with an emphasis on earthquake...

  2. 2015 An introduction to BurnMan - a mineral physics toolkit

    03 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Sanne Cottar, Timo Heister, Bob Myhill, Ian Rose, Cayman Unterborn

    In this webinar we will introduce the extensible, open source mineral physics toolkit BurnMan. This software allows the user to calculate the elastic and thermodynamic properties of rocks, minerals, fluids and melts based on the properties of end-member phases. BurnMan is bundled with...

  3. 2015 Simulating seismic wave propagation with SW4

    04 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Anders Petersson

    This webinar describes how to use the SW4 code to simulate ground motion due to earthquakes. After a brief overview of the numerical method, we describe how to set up a simulation in terms of seismic sources, the material model, visco-elastic attenuation, and topography. We also present some of...

  4. 2015 An introduction to Virtual Quake

    04 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Kasey Schultz, John Wilson

    This webinar will introduce Virtual Quake, a boundary element code that performs simulations of fault systems based on stress interactions between fault elements to understand long term statistical behavior. The webinar will cover:Downloading, installing and running Virtual...

  5. 2015 ASPECT: From Benchmarking to 3D Subduction Applications

    04 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Cedric Thieulot, Anne Glerum, Menno Fraters, Wim Spakman

    ASPECT, the Advanced Solver for Problems in Earth's Convection, is an extensible open source, community supported code.  The code is being applied to a broad range of problems in geodynamics.  This talk will explore the community's efforts in benchmarking, implementation of...

  6. 2016 Verification, Validation, and Predictive Capability: What's What?

    04 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): William Oberkampf

    Engineering and geosciences organizations must increasingly rely on computational simulation for the design, predicted response, and performance of manmade and natural systems. Computational analysts,  decision makers, and regulatory authorities who rely on simulation should have practical...

  7. 2016 Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Models of Physical Systems

    04 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Habib Najm

    Models of physical systems typically involve inputs/parameters that are determined from empirical measurements, and therefore exhibit a certain degree of uncertainty. Estimating the propagation of this uncertainty into computational model output predictions is crucial for purposes...

  8. 2016 Statistical and computational challenges of constraining greenhouse gas budgets

    04 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Anna M. Michalak

    Predicting future changes to the global carbon cycle (and therefore climate) and quantifying anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) both require an understanding of net GHGs emissions and uptake across a variety of spatial and temporal scales.  This talk will explore some of the...

  9. 2016 Resolution analysis by random probing

    04 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Andreas Fichtner, Tristan van Leeuwen

    We present a new method for resolution analysis in tomography, based on stochastic probing of the Hessian or resolution operators. Key properties of the method are (i) low algorithmic complexity and easy implementation, (ii) applicability to any tomographic technique, including full-waveform...

  10. 2016 Software Practices in Computational Science Communities – an Overview

    04 Feb 2021 | Webinars | Contributor(s): Anshu Dubey

    Scientific code developers typically adopt software processes derived from the mainstream (non-scientific) community when continuing without them becomes impractical. However, many software best practices need modification and/or customization, partly because the codes are used for...
