EXPLORE CARDIFF UNIVERSITY
The Group (Davies and team) is currently working in the very exciting field of trying to understand the fundamental relationship between tectonic plates and mantle convection. This is in combination with an increasing number of colleagues, currently including Geophysics at LM University (Munich), Engineering at Swansea University, and Mathematics and Computing Sciences at Cardiff University. The group is a leading player in the University Working Group for ARCCA – The Advanced Computing at Cardiff facility – which will soon house a significant (~top 50 in the world) cluster for our work; dwarfing the 200 processor Helix and ~400 processor Cubric clusters that we currently utilise on campus. This, together with the multi-resolution techniques we are developing, will allow us to undertake very high resolution global simulations.
