Centre of Excellence High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems
Geosciences Enabled by HPSC
The Centre for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems (HPSC TerrSys) was founded in 2011 by Geoverbund ABC/J. Together with its Simulation Laboratory Terrestrial Systems (SimLab TerrSys) and in close collaboration with the Jülich Supercomputing Center (JSC), the HPSC TerrSys provides service to the ABC/J scientists and professionally and technically supports the implementation of research by use of the supercomputers.
The research accompanied by the HPSC TerrSys includes questions regarding modelling of water-, energy- and turn-over-cycles throughout ground water systems, the land surface and the atmosphere. Furthermore it deals with the fusion of monitoring models due to data assimilation and inversion methods, as well as sustainable water management. The main focus of the Centre is the development, implementation and application of methods for integrated simulations of terrestrial systems on the catchment area scale.
