Environmental applications and simulation of natural risks
Some of our work in the design and rendering of large natural scenes (mud flows, rock flows, glaciers, avalanches, streams, forests, all simulated on a controllable terrain data) lead us to very interesting collaborations with scientists of other disciplines. These disciplines range from biology and environment to geology and mechanics. In particular, we are involved in inter-disciplinary collaborations in the domains of impact studies and simulation of natural risks, where visual communication using realistic rendering is essential for enhancing simulation results.
