SEA video series continues

20 September, 2023

DEEP-SEA, IO-SEA and RED-SEA have launched the second video in its series – Giovanni Lapenta from the KU Leuven explains his astrophysical research on solar winds known as “space weather” and how DEEP-SEA supports this work.

DEEP-SEA, IO-SEA and RED-SEA have released the second video of their SEA video series. In it, Prof. Giovanni Lapenta from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) shows how AI and supercomputing are helping scientists calculate solar winds and deal with massive amounts of data. Space weather is one of 19 DEEP application projects that use HPC computation capabilities in their research. The project studies the impact of solar activity on human life and technology. As part of the DEEP projects, the KU Leuven has developed the particle-in-cell code xPic, which studies the effects of solar plasma on the environment of planets in the solar system. In this video, Lapenta tells us more about how the DEEP projects have greatly benefitted his research field.

You can find the video on the SEA projects Youtube channel as well as in the video section of this website.
