ESiWACE: DYAMOND intercomparison project for storm-resolving global weather and climate models

By supporting the DYAMOND intercomparison of storm-resolving global weather and climate models, ESiWACE facilitates the development of these next-generation models, and advances climate science. The intercomparison allows to identify common features and model-specific behaviour, and thus yields new scientific discoveries and increases the robustness of our knowledge and the models.

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.
