Earth Physics - Centre for Advanced Data Inference

In July 2003, the Research School of Earth Sciences at the Australian National University provided funding for the creation of a new centre for Advanced Data Inference (CADI). The Centre's main goal is to develop and use state-of-the-art computational methods to analyze complex datasets and model Earth processes combining forward and inverse modelling techniques.

The Centre's operations are based on collaborative projects with other groups/centres in the Earth Sciences which are supported through partial funding of doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships, and an extensive visitor program.

The Centre provides access to parallel processing on a large cluster of performance PC's (called TerraWulf) funded by an ARC LIEF grant.

The Center's director, Malcolm Sambridge, is a member of the Earth Physics area at the Research School of Earth Sciences who also manages the TerraWulf facility.
