Video of the Week: ChEESE Women in Science

ChEESE celebrates the International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2021 by interviewing several of its women researchers. This video acknowledges their contributions and recognises their importance to earth sciences and to science in general.

ChEESE: Geomagnetic forecasts

The objective of this use case is to simulate and analyse the consequences of geomagnetic reversals with an unprecedented level of accuracy. These events are extremely rare in the history of our planet, hence the need to resort to numerical simulations to better understand the properties of reversals and their possible consequences for society.

ChEESE: Physics-Based Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment (PSHA)

The objectives of this use case is to develop general concepts for enabling physics-based seismic hazard assessment with state-of-the-art multi-physics earthquake simulation software and conduct 3D physics-based seismic simulations to improve PSHA for validation scenarios provided by IMO (Iceland) and beyond.

ChEESE: Probabilistic Volcanic Hazard Assessment (PVHA)

The objective of this use case is to provide innovative hazard maps with uncertainty, and overcoming the current limits of PVHA imposed so far by the high computational cost required to adequately simulate complex volcanic phenomena.

ChEESE: High-Resolution Volcanic Ash Dispersal Forecast

This pilot demonstrator is implementing an ensemble-based data assimilation system (workflow) combining the FALL3D dispersal model with high-resolution geostationary satellite retrievals in order to furnish high-resolution forecasts.
