[CIG-ALL] "Numerical modeling of earthquake physics" session at EGU2019


#1

Dear colleagues,
We would like to invite you to session SM2.1/GD8.7/NH4.8 “Numerical modeling of earthquake physics” at EGU 2019 to discuss on physics, numerical and computational, data analysis and observational aspects of earthquake phenomena.

We are looking forward to submissions from slow slip events, fault mechanics and rupture dynamics, to wave propagation and ground motion analysis, to the seismic cycle and interseismic deformation - and studies which further the state-of-the art in the related computational and numerical aspects.

Abstracts are due by 10 January at 13.00 CET. For abstract submission please go to https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2019/abstractsubmission/31877

The session conveners,
Alice-Agnes Gabriel (LMU Munich)

Jean-Paul Ampuero (Géoazur, Caltech)

Hideo Aochi (BRGM, DRP/RSE)

Session Description
Numerical modeling of earthquakes provides new approaches to apprehend the physics of earthquake rupture and the seismic cycle, seismic wave propagation, fault zone evolution and seismic hazard assessment.

Recent advances in numerical algorithms and increasing computational power enable unforeseen precision and multi-physics components in physics-based earthquake simulation but also pose challenges in terms of fully exploiting modern supercomputing infrastructure, realistic parameterization of simulation ingredients and the analysis of large synthetic datasets.

This session aims to bring together modelers and data analysts interested in the physics and computational aspects of earthquake phenomena. We welcome studies focusing on all aspects of the physics of various earthquakes - from slow slip events, fault mechanics and rupture dynamics, to wave propagation and ground motion analysis, to the seismic cycle and inter seismic deformation - and studies which further the state-of-the art in the related computational and numerical aspects.

We further encourage studies linking earthquake source processes to rock mechanics and the laboratory scale.
