A Digital Twin for GEOphysical extremes

A Digital Twin for GEOphysical extremes (DT-GEO) is a European project that aims to analyse and forecast the impact of tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, and anthropogenic seismicity.

The project relies on the cooperative networks of 26 research institutions, building upon existing knowledge from other European projects and Centres of Excellence and pushing it forward.

To achieve its goals, DT-GEO will build the components of a Digital Twin – virtual replica of physical systems that combine real-time data streams and high-fidelity models.

Digital twins are built on interactive digital platforms, which allow for continuous observation and simulation of supercomputing tasks to recreate present and future scenarios. DT-GEO capitalises on the outburst of supercomputing and technical capabilities to carry out advanced, real-time modelling and analysis for diagnostics and forecasting.
