Nepal Disaster Relief Efforts to Be Aided By Glacier Researchers: Supercomputers, Terrain-Mapping Techniques Employed In Urgent Efforts

Researchers who normally use high-resolution satellite imagery to study glaciers are using their technology this week to help with disaster relief and longer-term stabilization planning efforts related to the recent earthquake in Nepal. On April 25, a violent earthquake struck central Nepal, killing more than 7,000 people and destroying hundreds of thousands of homes. The deadliest earthquake in Nepal since 1934, the tremor killed at least 19 climbers and crew on Mount Everest and reportedly produced casualties in the adjoining countries of Bangladesh, China and India. Two research teams ...

XSEDE Campus Champions, Stampede and Lonestar4 Supercomputers of TACC Help Create 3D Images Deep Underground

A new work based on 3-D supercomputer simulations of earthquake data has found hidden rock structures deep under East Asia. Researchers from China, Canada, and the U.S. worked together to publish their results in March 2015 in the American Geophysical Union Journal of Geophysical Research, Solid Earth. The scientists used seismic data from 227 East Asia earthquakes during 2007-2011, which they used to image depths to about 900 kilometers, or about 560 miles below ground. Notable structures include a high velocity colossus beneath the Tibetan plateau, and a deep mantle upwelling beneath th...

PSC Poker Tournament Update: Claudico at the Bat

And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout, But there is no joy in Mudville—mighty Casey has struck out.—Casey at the Bat, Earnest Lawrence Thayer

There is rapidly diminishing joy around here. The math is building up, and it doesn’t look great.

“It’s common for a guy to be $200,000 up in Texas Hold ’em and still lose,” said Doug Polk, the world’s number one ranked poker player, at the beginning of the “Brains vs. Artificial Inelligence” tournament at the Rivers Casino here in Pittsburgh. I’d held onto that thought through ...
