The Computational Applied Geophysics Group at Memorial University is a multi-disciplinary research group whose goals are to develop numerical modelling and high-performance computing techniques for all fields of applied geophysics.

Current activities include the High-Performance Computing for Geophysical Applications project funded by the Atlantic Innovation Fund and the Research and Development Corporation of NL, which involves development of seismic modelling capabilities, reverse-time migration, and inversion algorithms on a 600-core, 14-GPU hybrid CPU/GPU computer cluster.

A selection of current projects can be found here.

A sister project, the Atlantic Collaborative Research Group in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, can be found here.
