TeraGrid Resources Allocated for Earthquake Research

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) more than 15 million service units of computer processing time on supercomputers nationwide. This allocation is roughly equivalent to running 2,000 desktop computers continuously for a year. SCEC will use the supercomputing time to greatly improve the detail and scope of its massive simulations of large earthquakes in Southern California.

NSF provides funding for about 20 supercompunters throughtout the Counry. Each year, processing time on these computers is allocated as "service units" and is based on review of many proposals.
