Upgrading Computing Hardware to Support Geoscience Initiatives

Project: Research project

Project Details




This grant provides partial support of the costs of upgrading computational equipment within the Geosciences Department at Penn State University (PSU). High end multi-CPU servers and networked workstations will allow sharing of computational resources by various targeted research groups, postdocs, and graduate and undergraduate students. The equipment will be used for a wide array of compute intensive research in the earth sciences including: seismological research aimed at elucidating the structure of continental crust and volcanic plumbing systems; studies of the geodynamic evolution of active plate margins; modeling of fluvial erosional processes and landscape evolution; modeling basin sedimentation processes; and simulations of chemical reactions and kinetics at mineral-water interfaces.
