The Center of Excellence in Performance Optimisation and Productivity (POP) has recently worked with ChEESE in order to improve the FALL3D code and the workflow developed in the project´s Pilot Demonstrator 6 - Probabilistic Volcanic Hazard Assessment (PVHA), that analyses several thousands of FALL3D simulations. The resulting Probabilistic Volcanic Hazard Assessment Work Flow package (PVHA_WF) has allowed FALL3D to achieve 588x and 488x execution time speedups.

Within the ChEESE Center of Excellence for Exascale in Solid Earth (ChEESE), the earthquake simulation software SeisSol, one of the 10 ChEESE flagship codes, is being ported to GPU-based supercomputers. First simulations have now been executed on Marconi100 and Piz Daint, two of the largest European supercomputers.
