Share Your Science: Predicting Earthquakes with Supercomputers

Tom Jordan, Director, Southern California Earthquake at University of Southern California and a team of researchers are using the 27 petaflop Titan Supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Lab with 18,688 Tesla GPUs to develop physics-based earthquake simulations. Their work is helping advance our understanding of earthquake systems, including potential seismic hazards from known faults and the impact of strong ground motions on urban areas.
