The KeckCAVES provides an intellectual and computational framework for the visual exploration, manipulation, and creation of data and models. We develop and use visualization tools to gain insights into problems that are difficult to address using other techniques.
Prof. Dawn Sumner and her work on the Mars rover Curiosity are highlighted in a pair of videos by the UC Office of the President, filmed in KeckCAVES. Curiosity landed successfully on Mars on August 5, 2012.
KeckCAVES scientists Oliver Kreylos, Burak Yikilmaz and Peter Gold have developed an augmented reality sandbox as part of a project exploring how to use informal science education to increase awareness about lake basins. It was featured in Wired.
Prof. Mike Oskin led the first study comparing pre- and post-event lidar scans to detect near-field deformation from the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake rupture in northern Mexico as reported in the Feb. 10 2012 issue of the journal Science.
KeckCAVES scientists Margarete Jadamec, Magali Billen, and Oliver Kreylos won “Best Paper and Best Science Paper” at the XSEDE 2012 National Conference for their paper “Three-dimensional Simulations of Geometrically Complex Subduction with Large Viscosity Variations”
