Seismic Modeling 3D
Accurate modeling of seismic wave propagation in complex media is extremely important for many seismic processing algorithms. These algorithms are computationally expensive, so they need scalable parallel systems to produce results in a timely manner. We implements a parallel acoustic wave propagation model, that employs the Finite Difference Method (FDM) with 8th-order in space and second order in time. The implementation uses hybrid MPI/OpenMP where the domain decomposition is performed via MPI and OpenMP is used to parallelize the stencil computation in each MPI process.
