12.521 Computational Geophysical Modeling


Class Info

Introduces theory, design, and practical methods of computational modeling in geodynamics and geophysical fluid dynamics. Covers the most effective and widely used numerical modeling approaches (e.g., boundary element, finite difference, finite element) and emphasizes problem-solving skills through illustrative examples of heat and mass transfer in the mantle and the ocean. Students acquire experience with various numerical methods through regularly assigned computational exercises and a term-long modeling project of each student's choice.

This class has no prerequisites.

12.521 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by J. Lin, O. Marchal and M. Behn.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
