Join us 11am–12pm this Wednesday (2021-09-01) for this week’s installment of the EarthByte seminar series! This week’s speakers are Sebastian Haan and Henry Lydecker of the Sydney Informatics Hub at the University of Sydney.
Geophysical models are typically complex, non-linear simulations which are computationally very expensive and thus difficult for traditional sampling techniques to explore the entire parameter distribution. Here we present a Python implementation (DoEgen) that leverages statistical methods for efficient Design of Experiment (DoE) generation and evaluation, using only a fraction of parameter combinations. We demonstrate how to apply DoEgen to a simplified Basin and Landscape Dynamics (Badlands) simulation using a custom built pipeline package (DoEgen-Geo), which covers the entire workflow from generating simulation parameters to producing Badlands simulation results and model evaluation. While DoEgen-Geo has been built with a focus on optimising Badlands simulations, the software can be applied to a wide range of geophysical simulation and model explorations.
