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.
