Video of the Week - Earthquake simulation wins SciDAC award

The many visualizations that come out of high performance computing centers can be fantastically beautiful. This simulation of a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Southern California is no exception.

That's probably why it was recognized recently at the SciDAC (Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing) Vis Night awards as one of the top ten scientific visualizations of 2009.

The simulation, which has been affectionately dubbed 'The Big One,' used resources via the San Diego Supercomputer Center, the Texas Advanced Computing Center, the Southern California Earthquake Center, and Teragrid.

This video of The Big One was recently posted on the WIRED Science Blog, along with the other nine award winners. Check out the rest, which are just as fantastic, at
