Florian Hecher: Development of a tool for postprocessing of simulated earthquake data

As they are really difficult to predict, simulating tsunamis is an important task in estimating their impact. This simulation should be well connected to a previous earthquake simulation. For the earthquake simulation tool SeisSol and the tsunami simulation tool sam(oa)² this connection is currently quite poor, as SeisSols output format doesn't match the input requirements of sam(oa)². This thesis aims to resolve this issue by converting SeisSols triangular mesh to sam(oa)²s rectangular grid. This conversion is done via integral over the original data for the rectangles area. The result is a program with a low runtime that provides a conversion with high accuracy and enables precise simulations of possible tsunamis.
