Second NIC Excellence Project 2014

During its October meeting at JSC, the NIC Peer Review Board awarded the title of NIC Excellence Project 2014 to a second outstanding simulation project. The goal of the project "Numerical modelling of lithospheric and crustal-scale deformation on geological timescales", submitted by Prof. Boris Kaus (Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz) is to use three-dimensional deformation models to understand the dynamics of colliding tectonic plates, mountain belt formation, and salt tectonics.
