Automated adjoints: how much do we really know about the source of the Indian Ocean tsunami?

Employing the use of automatic code generation, which formulates data into an efficient computer code, and efficient graphical-processing units, Dr Ham aims to dramatically reduce both developer effort and the incidence of code bugs to produce a model of the 2004 tsunami that can be used to conduct the missing sensitivity analysis of a number of published source scenarios. This will allow him to find out how much is known about the disaster's causes.
