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.
Published on the Princeton University Facebook account this morning was Prof. Jeroen Tromp's statement on yesterday's Virginia earthquake. Appearing along side the statement was a Global ShakeMovie documenting the earthquake and an array of comments coming in from all facets of Facebook life.
