Jeroen Tromp, Professor at Princeton University shares how his team is using the Tesla GPU-accelerated Titan Supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to image the earth’s interior on a global scale. Tromp and his team are simulating seismic wave propagation by analyzing hundreds of earthquakes recorded by thousands of stations across the world to create 3D global tomographic maps.
Three Princeton University-related computer programs have been chosen to run on a new supercomputer that will deliver enhanced scientific findings when it begins crunching numbers in 2018. The three projects were among 13 selected to run in the Center for Accelerated Application Readiness program at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility.
