Game Grid

Game Grid

The goal of the Game Grid Project is to create games, tools, and services that allow educators and researchers to study social behavior in multi-user persistent games as well as examine how these environments can be used to teach students about Science.

SCEC Visualizations

SCEC Visualizations

Visualizations projects for various earthquake simulations done by SCEC. The TeraShake simulations modeled the earth shaking that would rattle Southern California if a 230 kilometer section of the San Andreas fault ruptured producing a magnitude 7.7 earthquake. Two rupture scenarios were simulated, one rupturing from north to south, beginning near Wrightwood, California, and a second one rupturing from south to north, starting near Bombay Beach, California. To model this region, the simulations used a 3,000 by 1,500 by 400 mesh, dividing the volume into 1.8 billion cubes with a spatial resolution of 200 meters on a side, and with a maximum frequency of .5 hertz -- the biggest and most detailed simulation of this region to date. In such a large simulation, a key challenge was to handle the enormous range of length scales, which extends from 200 meters -- especially important near the ground surface and rupturing fault -- to hundreds of kilometers across the entire domain.

ENZO

ENZO

Cosmological evolution from recombination to reionization: reconstructing the first billion years, using a 3D cosmological hydrodynamics code, Enzo, which solves the equations of gas dynamics, N-body dynamics, self-gravtiy, nonequilibrium chemistry and ionization, radiative transfer, heating and cooling, star formation and feedback in an expanding universe.

SFquake Visualizations

1906 San Francisco Earthquake Visualizations

Recreation of 1906 San Francisco earthquake based on USGS simulations.

Columbia

Columbia River Flow Visualization

Visualization of columbia river region in washington state based on climate simulations data. The data provides information about snow coverage and river flow volumes at 5 station locations. The movies cover a time span of 20 years from Jan 1980 to Dec 1999.
