[CIG-ALL] Call for Submissions - HPC in Solid Earth Geohazards: Progresses, Achievements and Challenges for a Safer World - Research Topic in Frontiers in Earth Science

Dear colleagues,

Apologies for any cross-posting.

Frontiers in Earth Science has launched a new Research Topic, High-Performance Computing in Solid Earth Geohazards: Progresses, Achievements and Challenges for a Safer World:


We would like to invite you to submit your contribution to this special issue.

We welcome interdisciplinary expertise conveying scientific progress into achievements and challenges for supercomputing that empowers a better understanding of solid earth hazards and the natural processes driving them. A variety of types of manuscripts will be considered, namely: Original Research, Methods, Review, Technology and Code, and Perspective.

We especially encourage contributions dealing with:
• long term and short term probabilistic seismic/volcanic/tsunami hazard assessment;
• volcanic eruptions and volcanic plumes transport;
• tsunami modelling and tsunami source characterisation;
• deterministic seismic ground motion modelling;
• multi-scale and multi-physics earthquake rupture modelling integrating observations;
• data assimilation;
• uncertainty quantification and reduction;
• urgent computing and early warning.

We would like to point out that there is a limited amount of waivers of submission fees available and that the special issue specifically allows code and technology specific contributions. This Research Topic is promoted by the EU Centre of Excellence in Solid Earth for Exascale computing ChEESE (https://cheese-coe.eu/).

Best regards,
Marta Pienkowska, on behalf of the Topic Editors
