Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have developed physics-based dynamic rupture models that can simulate complex earthquake ruptures using supercomputers.
The researchers used this method to run dozens of numerical simulations, and documented a large number of interactions that were then analyzed using advanced visualization software.
The team performed this research on the Stampede supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, and the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
Said National Science Foundation Earth Sciences Program Director Eva Zanzerkia, "This research has provided us with a new understanding of a complex set of faults in Southern California that have the potential to impact the lives of millions of people in the U.S. and Mexico."
