Simulations in Geophysics and Space Physics (Part 1 of 2)

(part 2)

Organizers and Chair persons:
Mats Holmström, Swedish Institute of Space Physics, Kiruna, Sweden
Kjell Rönnmark, Department of Physics, Umeå University, Sweden


High performance computing (HPC) enables increasingly complex computer models of physical processes to be built.  Parallel computing, adaptive grids, and other computing tools are used to solve ever larger problems, but they also increase the complexity of the software significantly and can have an impact on the reliability of the software and the results of the computations.

These issues make the software and algorithms used an important part of the science produced by simulations in geophysics and space physics.

However, traditional conferences and journals in geophysics and space physics do not lend themselves for presentations and discussions of details of the models. The aim of this minisymposium is to provide such a forum.
