The Key Laboratory of Computational Geodynamics (KLCG) was initially founded in 2003, co-organized by the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and by Peking University. On December 30th, 2010, it has been enrolled as a key laboratory of Chinese Academy of Sciences and has gotten regular annual funding since then.


       The KLCG is the first and only laboratory in China majoring in research on computational geodynamics, with multidisciplinary methods of theoretical development, laboratory experiments, and most importantly numerical simulations. The main research interests include (but are not limited to): geodynamics-oriented software development and platform construction, computational modeling in long-term tectonic-evolution dynamics, and short-term seismic dynamics. The advanced computational and visualization facilities are installed in the laboratory for scientific computation and numerical simulations.


        In terms of software development environment, our research team has individually developed a high-performance computing (HPC) software. Besides, an online edition of finite element program generator is deployed in our laboratory. The finite element program can run stably in our parallel computer and other massively parallel computers such as Lenovo DeepComp massively parallel computer. What's more, we try to offer an open research platform, aiming to establish a virtual computational geodynamics laboratory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It hopes to build a special talent team and strengthen fundamental research in the computational geodynamics area, as well as to improve the national economy and people's livelihood.
