LMU-TUM Research Team Wins Best Paper Award at SC17
Newsflash –

A multidisciplinary team recreated the 2004 Sumatra earthquake and tsunami event in the largest, longest multiphysics earthquake simulation to date. The team was awarded Best Paper at the world’s premier supercomputing conference, SC17.

A team of researchers led by Prof. Michael Bader from the Technical University of Munich and Dr. Alice-Agnes Gabriel of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich were awarded the SC17 best paper for its simulation of the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake and resulting tsunami.

The SuperComputing (SC) Conference series is one of the world’s most prestigious supercomputing conferences, held this year Nov. 12-17 in Denver, Colorado. 

Using the SuperMUC computer at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, the team was able to simulate 1,500 kilometers of the earthquake source for over 8 minutes of simulated time. To date, this is the largest, longest simulation of a megathrust earthquake.
