TEAR - Truly Extended Earthquake Rupture
Earthquakes are a multi-scale and multi-physics hazard. The ERC Starting Grant project TEAR aims on providing a bridge by modeling using the largest supercomputers world-wide, enabling, for example, probabilistic forecasting of ground shaking.
TEAR proposes a paradigm shift in modeling earthquake dynamics and our understanding on how faults slip - a grand challenge of computational seismology and geophysics.
For this purpose TEAR will combine novel mathematical frameworks, field observations and laboratory data sets and cutting-edge numerical techniques empowered by supercomputing.
We are a growing and diverse team led by PI Dr. Alice-Agnes Gabriel.
