NIC Excellence Project 2013
At its April meeting at JSC, the NIC Peer Review Board decided to award an outstanding simulation project with the title of NIC Excellence Project. "First-principles modeling of minerals, melts and fluids at high pressures and high temperatures", submitted by Dr. Sandro Jahn (German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ, Potsdam), investigates material properties and chemical processes under extreme temperatures and pressures in order to understand geochemical and geodynamic processes in the Earth's crust and mantle.
