Large-Scale Computations in Groundwater Simulation

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Ballroom B

The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss recent research in the development of large-scale simulators for groundwater flow and species transport. The design of the current generation of simulators incorporates the latest results in multigrid or domain decomposition preconditioning, linear and nonlinear solvers, and modeling. Exploitation of parallelism is necessary to obtain results for the three-dimensional problems that these simulators will solve. The speakers are all actively involved with either the design or the use of these large-scale simulators.
