Abstract:

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP NUMERICAL ALGORITHMS AND PROTOTYPE DISTRIBUTED COMPUTER SYSTEMS FOR PERFORMING LARGE SCALE COMPUTATIONS IN FORWARD AND INVERSE GEOPHYSICAL MODELING, WITH APPLICATIONS IN OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION, HIGH RESOLUTION RESERVOIR DELINEATION, AND STRUCTURAL MAPPING. CODES ARE BEING DEVELOPED FOR SEISMIC RAY TRACING AND TRAVEL TIME INVERSION IN THREE-DIMENSIONAL COMPLEX GEOLOGICAL MEDIA THAT REQUIRE SUPERCOMPUTERS FOR PRACTICAL APPLICATION. COARSE GRAIN PARALLELISM INHERENT IN RAY TRACING AND INVERSION SOFTWARE HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED THROUGH EXPERIENCE WITH ADAPTING THEM TOCOOPERATIVE DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING. UNDER THE PLANNED PROJECT, TESTING IS BEING EXTENDED AND STRATEGIES FOR DEVELOPING ALGORITHMS AND SOFTWARE FOR DISTRIBUTED NETWORKS OF HETEROGENEOUS COMPUTERS ARE BEING EXPLORED.
