In cases of a natural catastrophes, efficient computational algorithms and the most powerful computer in Europe might be required to help manage these emergencies, in the shortest possible time.
Tsunamis are long water waves caused by other large natural hazards such as earthquakes, landslides, and volcanoes. They present a threat to near-coastal populations and infrastructure. In ChEESE, new ways of quantifying tsunami hazard will be developed. The main aim is to utilize large High Performance Computing resources to map the tsunami inundation hazard at very high resolution while, at the same time, estimating the large uncertainty associated with tsunamis.
ChEESE partners from the Barcelona Performance Computing Center (BSC) are in charge of Task 3.2, which proposes to explore parallel mesh partitioning strategies to enable dynamic load balance of the different simulation codes.

ChEESE researchers came out in full force at the 27th International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) General Assembly, held in Montreal, Canada on July 8-18, 2019.

The IUGG General Assembly is one of the biggest international events for those in the fields of Earth sciences and geosciences. It is held every four years, during which there are over 4,000 attendees.
