Title: Sierra Advances Resolution of Hayward Fault Earthquake Simulations

Abstract

The character of strong earthquake shaking within a few kilometers of a fault is highly variable and poorly constrained by relatively few empirical recordings. Supercomputers enable simulation of earthquake motions to investigate the hazard and risk to buildings and infrastructure before damaging events occur. However, they require meter scale resolution to capture fine details in high frequency waves (5 - 10 Hz) on regional scales (~ 100 km).
