Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior

Description:
Program provides undergraduate research opportunities in computational geodynamics. Research projects are related to numerical modeling and computer simulation of magmatic and tectonic phenomena caused by the dynamics of Earth's deep interior, such as plate tectonics, mountain building, seafloor spreading, and volcanism. This research provides a unique blend of geological sciences, physics, engineering (fluid mechanics, continuum and solid mechanics), numerical methods and computational sciences, and employs some of the nation?s fastest supercomputers to achieve this.
