New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge

The Great Trash Float!

Team: 111

School: Santa Fe High

Area of Science: Environmental Science

Proposal: On March 11, 2011 Japan was struck by a massive tsunami that killed over hundreds of people. What people haven’t been thinking about is the aftermath of that tsunami. The tsunami caused severe damage and washed out tons of debris. What happened to all of that debris? It is floating across the Pacific Ocean and will eventually reach the western coast of the United States!

Our project will graph the course of that massive collection of debris and predict its direction, speed, and course of travel. We are looking forward to competing in the supercomputing challenge this year.
