In 2002, Earth Simulator(Original) was introduced into a purpose of solving global scale environmental phenomena and predicting future environment, and accurately numerical simulation in hard analysis, and significantly contributed to the development of numerical simulation in the area of earth science and related technical fields.
In March 2015, Earth Simulator was replaced to new system as the third generation.
The system enables the highest performance and conducts more elaborate calculations and larger scale simulations. The system is also expected to contribute to solving mechanisms of global environmental problems, crustal changes, and seismogenic process, and predicting the damage caused by the tsunami.
