Research Field

1. Brief Introduction of Computational Geodynamics

Computational geodynamics emphasizes interdisciplinary research. This subject combines the latest achievements in large-scale parallel computing, high-performance visualization, and modern computational mathematics applied to scientific problems of geodynamics. Multi-scale spatio-temporal studies are implemented to study the dynamic processes of Earth's multiple layers and their coupling and interactions. The ultra-large-scale parallel numerical experiments gradually become an essential tool for understanding the processes and dynamics of the Earth. Moreover, state-of-the-art scientific achievements are applied to improve the national economy and people's livelihood.


2. Research target

Based on theoretical calculations and in some cases software program development, dynamic and flexible numerical simulations constrained in terms of the available geological observations are applied as a primary tool to comprehensively study Earth dynamics, from long-term tectonic evolution dynamics to short-term seismic dynamics, which contribute to revealing internal operation mechanisms of the Earth.


3. Main research interests

According to the focused research target of the laboratory, we have integrated the research interests into a grid of One Body and Two WingsOne Body refers to software development and platform construction in the laboratory. Meanwhile, Two Wings represents the two main research areas, which are long-term tectonic-evolution dynamicsand short-term seismic dynamics


4. Achievements

Based on the platform of KLCG, our research team focuses on studies for the long term, referring to the research targets and interests. The team members have obtained abundant outstanding academic achievements, which serve for platform construction in the laboratory and meet the requirements of national strategies.
