Proposal for DEISA Extreme Computing Initiative accepted !

Martin Käser's proposal "Seismic wave propagation solutions for realistic 3D media" for the DEISA (Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications) Extreme Computing Initiative is accepted. In collaboration with Michael Dumbser and Josep de la Puente a new high-resolution approach for wave propagation simulation on massively parallel hardware is further developed and applied to large-scale problems in numerical seismology.

The LMU issued a recent press statement on work by Toni Kraft and co-workers at LMU Geophysics and University of Potsdam, published in Geophysical Research Letters and Tectonophysics, in which they argue for a link between rainfall and seismic instability.
