EUROPEAN RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE ON SOLID EARTH

Computational Seismolgy | tools and services

With the ascent of community developed software packages for seismic waveform propagation in complex media (SPECFEM family, AxiSEM, seissol), major advances have been possible in imaging 3D earth structure ranging from global to local scales viable for georesources. Recent developments in full waveform simulation in complex 3D media make it now possible to cope with frequencies in the "engineering range", making such modeling relevant for earthquake risk assessment and enabling to move towards simulation based hazard.


Current activity in the EPOS-IP project:

 In the last years the EU funded VERCE project has developed a framework wrapping the seismology data-­‐infrastructure resources and services with a set of distributed data-aware Grid, Cloud and HPC resources provided by the European e‐infrastructures and the community. Participants are key institutions involved in VERCE, working in close coordination with the computational seismology community to develop a priority list of further codes to be deployed. In addition, this task will implement the 3D waveform modeling portal developed in VERCE for contributing to the EPOS Computational Earth Science infrastructure that will be designed in WP7.
