Paul Charbonneau

Paul Charbonneau seeks to model the sun’s cycle of magnetic activity, which will lead to a better understanding of the impacts of such activity on the environment and the communications infrastructure. His work has led to a new global simulation code called EULAG. http://www.astro.umontreal.ca/~paulchar/grps/mhd_a.html [separator size=”small” center=”true” empty=”false” opaque=”false” margin_top=””...

Robin Gras

Robin Gras has created EcoSim, a freely available simulation of a predator-prey ecosystem. It can help better understand how human behaviour can affect ecosystems by predicting possible extinctions, the invasion of species or the spread of disease. https://sites.google.com/site/ecosimgroup/research/ecosystem-simulation [separator size=”small” center=”true” empty=”false” opaque=”false” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””] [dropcap style=””]T[/dropcap]his research is focused...

Christopher Beaumont

Christopher Beaumont has developed a numerical model called DOUAR, which addresses three-dimensional flow problems from the area of the earth’s crust to its mantle. This model, available online, enables researchers to better understand the distribution of natural resources such as oil and gas deposits. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0031920108000940 [separator size=”small” center=”true” empty=”false” opaque=”false”...
