Madagascar School and Workshop on Reproducible Computational Geophysics

 

Agenda

Day 1: Friday, July 20
8:00-9:00 Coffee/pastries/installation

Bring your laptop and get help getting Madagascar installed.

9:00-10:15 Introduction (Sergey Fomel)

The Madagascar open-source project has been in public existence for six years. Madagascar provides a complete environment for organizing one's research, from new software development to running computational experiments to publishing the computational results in papers and reports, archiving them for future usage, and sharing them with colleagues or sponsors. The introductory presentation will describe the history of the project, the Madagascar main components and design principles, and the plans for future development.

10:15-10:30 break
10:30-12:00 Introductory exercise (Siwei Li)
12:00-1:00 Lunch
1:00-1:45 RSF file format
1:45-2:30 Command-line versus SCons
2:30-2:45 break
2:45-3:30 Vplot graphics
3:30-5:00 Seismic Field Data Processing
5:30-8:30 Wine reception and dinner at Maggiano's

 

Day 2: Saturday, July 21

Speakers

  • Sergey Fomel has been working at the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin since 2002 and currently has an Associate Professor appointment, jointly with the Department of Geological Sciences. He received a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Stanford University in 2001 and worked previously at the Institute of Geophysics in Novosibirsk, Russia, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Sergey started work on Madagascar (at that time named RSF for Regularly Sampled Format) in 2003. http://www.jsg.utexas.edu/researcher/sergey_fomel/
  • Jingwei Hu is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES), the University of Texas at Austin. Jingwei received her BS degree (2006) in computational mathematics from Peking University, China, and her PhD degree (2011) in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her interests are numerical methods and applied analysis for kinetic theory, conservation laws, quantum mechanics, high frequency waves, and seismic imaging. http://users.ices.utexas.edu/~hu/
  • Siwei Li graduated from Peking University with a Bachelor's Degree in Geophysics and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree at the University of Texas at Austin.
  • Paul Sava is an Associate Professor of Geophysics and a member of the Center for Wave Phenomena at Colorado School of Mines. He holds an Engineering degree in Geophysics (1995) from the University of Bucharest, an M.Sc. (1998) and a Ph.D. (2004) in Geophysics from Stanford University where he was a member of the Stanford Exploration Project. His research interests are in wavefield seismic imaging, stochastic imaging and inversion, computational methods for wave propagation, numeric optimization and high performance computing. http://newton.mines.edu/paul/home.php
