MEFISTO has been updated to version 2. This version includes a fix to the bulk permeability calculation between neighboring cells, using the harmonic mean.
MEFISTO will feature in two presentations at the American Geophysical Union annual Fall meeting, 2020. Check it out!
Output of MEFISTO can be saved in stored frames using the frame_int variable. This records conditions on the subduction interface every <frame_int> steps (“int” meaning “interval”). So use a smaller number for a higher frame rate.
You can then make animations by contouring the “frame” variables (loc_frame for cell location, fluid_pressure_frame, etc.). Below are two examples. Check back soon for the code to produce .gifs.
You are viewing conditions on the subduction interface itself: simultaneous videos of slip deficit (left) and fluid pressure (right). Warmer or brighter colors are higher values.
Welcome to MEFISTO! Have a look around, get cracking on some subduction zone models, and get in touch!
