The main objective of ChEESE is to establish a new Center of Excellence (CoE) in the domain of Solid Earth (SE) targeting the preparation of 10 Community flagship European codes for the upcoming pre-Exascale (2020) and Exascale (2022) supercomputers.Read more
The objectives of the project will be achieved through activities organized in six workpackages. These include Management (WP1) and Dissemination, training and outreach (WP6). The technical work is organized in HPC Software Engineering (WP2), HPC modelling workflows and tools (WP3), Exascale pilot demonstrators (WP4) and Service validation and enabling (WP5).Read more
The ChEESE CoE consortium consists of 13 partners including a range of world-class academic and industry partners from across Europe.Read more
A component of ChEESE´s pilot demonstrator on Geomagnetic Forecasts (PD11) comprises the simulation and analysis of geomagnetic reversals, which are exceptional periods in the Earth’s history when the magnetic North becomes South, and vice-versa. This is a process which occurred over the history of the Earth. Over the past 10 million years, there were about four to five such reversals per million years. The last reversal took place about 780,000 years ago, which indicates that the next one may be overdue.
