Forest dynamic simulation plays an important role in studying the long-term development of forest structure and composition. Seeds dispersal, the initial step of forest dynamic process, forms the vital component of forest dynamic simulation. However, it is time-consuming to perform the realistic and spatially-explicit seeds dispersal process. We propose a… (More)
Balancing different forest management goals related to economic, ecological, and social sustainability, a rapid simulation system uses CPU+GPU heterogeneous patterns to accelerate the computation of dynamic processes, supporting quick and intelligent decision making.
In forest dynamics models, the intensive computation and load involved in the simulation of seed dispersal can become unbearably huge for large-scale forest analysis. To solve this problem, we propose a multi-resolution algorithm to compute seed dispersal on GPU. By exploiting the computation parallelism of seed dispersal, the computation of the whole… (More)
