About the Event

Mark your diaries for the 3-day 2024 G-ADOPT workshop, which will be held at the ANU’s Kioloa Coastal Campus in New South Wales!

G-ADOPT, or the Geoscientific Adjoint Optimization Platform, is an ARDC-supported platform that helps earth science researchers derive and implement inverse models. It combines the dolfin-adjoint software library, which provides a state-of-the-art inverse modelling method, and Firedrake, which can automatically generate the code for the modelling. Originally designed for geodynamics, it is now transforming data-driven modelling capabilities across the geosciences. Learn more about G-ADOPT.

The workshop will provide background to the platform and training for potential users, facilitating community growth. It will provide an opportunity for the G-ADOPT team to showcase recent progress on the forward and adjoint components of this finite element modelling platform.

Focus Areas

  • Mantle and lithosphere dynamics
  • Glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) and visco-elasticity
  • Multi-material simulations
  • Adjoint-based optimisation problems

Who Should Attend

National and international participants are welcome. Registration is free for students and early-career researchers (ECRs).
