Introduction to Quagmire


Quagmire is an open source, parallel python module for modelling surface processes and landscape evolution. It comes from the Underworld geodynamics group and has many common design patterns to Underworld. For starters, this is not an out-of-the-box landscape evolution code — it is instead a collection of high level classes that can form parallel triangulations, gradient formation, stream-power calculations, catchment computation, lake detection etc. all of which can be used to write compact landscape codes in python. Quagmire also provides the concept of meshes and mesh variables that we try to make as similar as possible to the comparable concept in Underworld. Quagmire is a work in progress but gradually growing. We would like to encourage people to use the tools and contribute ideas.

About CIG Webinars

The CIG Webinar Series draws from a pool of experts from mathematicians, to computer scientists, and to geoscientists, among others to bring together a cross-cutting community of faculty, students and researchers to both inform and disseminate knowledge on the tools and methodologies employed to further the study of problems in geodynamics.

In 2018-2019, our theme covers open source codes in geodynamics including perspectives on the next generation of community codes and open source codes and tools that are available to the community.

The one hour webinars will be held the 2nd Thursday of each month October through May. Webinars will be recorded for later viewing. Reminders and details will be sent out through the cig-all mailing list.
