Carsten Burstedde: High-resolution Simulation of Mantle Flow and Plate Tectonics

Springer has awarded the Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) Prize 2011 to Laura Alisic, Carsten Burstedde, Georg Stadler for their outstanding work on simulating global mantle convection at tectonic plate boundary-resolving scales. The CSE Prize, given for the second time, is accompanied by US $10,000. The award was presented to the scientists by the Norwegian Minister of Research, Tora Aasland, on 14 December 2011 at the Challenges in Computing conference.
