Largest Supercomputer Simulation of Sumatra-Andaman Earthquake

By Linda Barney

This article features the results of the December 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake and of how it was one of the Picture1most powerful and destructive seismic events in history and cause a tsunami which killed thousands of lives from many countries and even displaced the North Pole by 2.5 cm. [1] Many questions have risen since then about earthquakes and the article describes the research done by scientists from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) of the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake to better understand earthquakes and tsunamis. [2] The research includes information such as the studying of the Subduction Zone Megathrust Earthquakes, Petascale Multi-Physics Simulation of the 2004 Sumatra Earthquake, and Supercomputers Used in the Research.
