Computational Mineral Physics: Challenges and Opportunities
From the Columbia University in the City of New York
Hosted by Reidar Trønnes
In the last two decades, computational mineral physics flourished into a well-established branch of geosciences. Computed equations of state and acoustic velocities in minerals and aggregates offer essential information for the interpretation of seismic tomography. Computed thermodynamic properties are also critical for modern geodynamic simulations. It is also an indispensable partner of experimental high-pressure mineral physics, and together, both fields advance simultaneously.
