Numerical modeling of earthquake physics
Convener: Alice-Agnes Gabriel  | Co-Convener: Hideo Aochi 

Invited presentations by Jean-Paul Ampuero (Caltech, USA) Yumi Urata (NIED, Japan) and Takane Hori (Jamstec, Japan).

Numerical modeling of earthquakes provides new approaches to apprehend the physics of earthquake rupture, seismic wave propagation, fault zone evolution and seismic hazard assessment.

Recent advances in numerical algorithms and increasing computational power enable unforeseen precision and details in physics-based earthquake simulation but also pose challenges in terms of fully exploiting modern supercomputing infrastructure, realistic parameterization of simulation ingredients and the analysis of large synthetic datasets.

This session aims to bring together modelers and data analysists interested in the physics and computational aspects of earthquake phenomena. We welcome studies focusing on all aspects of the physics of various earthquakes - from slow slip events and rupture dynamics to wave propagation and ground motion analysis - and studies which further the state-of-the art in the related computational and numerical aspects.
