UC San Diego to Develop Cyberinfrastructure for NASA’s ICESat-2 Data

“OpenAltimetry” (www.openaltimetry.org) will build upon technology that SDSC developed for its NSF-funded OpenTopography facility. SDSC and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, also at UC San Diego, were awarded a NASA ACCESS grant to develop a cyberinfrastructure platform for discovery, access, and visualization of data from NASA’s ICESat and upcoming ICESat-2 laser altimeter missions. ICESat and ICESat-2 […]

SDSC Achieves Record Performance in Seismic Simulations with Intel

Researchers at SDSC develop a new seismic software package with Intel Corporation that enables the fastest seismic simulation to-date, with the goal of better predicting ground motions to save lives and minimize property damage. The latest simulations were done using a new software system called EDGE, for Extreme-Scale Discontinuous Galerkin Environment. The largest simulation used […]
