Researchers Use GPUs to Detect Earthquake Hazards Coming Our Way

Originally published at: Researchers Use GPUs to Detect Earthquake Hazards Coming Our Way | NVIDIA Developer Blog

Southern California Earthquake Center researchers are using GPUs to develop a complex model that calculates how earthquake waves move through a 3D model of the Earth. This helps develop earthquake forecasts and more accurate hazard assessments. SCEC’s initial target is the Los Angeles region, where the Pacific and American tectonic plates run into each other to…
