Presentation of the first 3D simulations of HiPerBorea at the 12th International Conference on Porous Media InterPore 2020

The first (preliminary !) 3D simulation results of HiPerBorea were obtained by modeling thermal dynamics of the permafrost of the Kulingdakan watershed (Central Siberia)  for a whole hydrological cycle (spatio-temoral dimensions of the model : 1 year, 40 km2 of surface, 10 m thickness ; numerical facts : a 60 millions cells mesh, 3456 cores requests on Occigen supercomputer). These results have been presented at the International Confrence on Porous Media in early spetember 2020. The conference was supposed to take place in Qingdao, China, but due to the pandemic context it has been finally held virtually. 

Please find the presentation video here, and the presentation slides here.

Field mission in Abisko – July 2022

On July 2022 a field mission to Abisko Research Station in Northern Sweden has been done. The goals were to produce a new vegetation map for Stordalen and Mielajokka catchments (see the previous HiPerBorea field mission in Abisko) based on satelite data (Auda et al., in prep) and to sample sphagnum mosses from the peatlands […]
