The Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG), in collaboration with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), held a workshop last year that focused on computational seismology. The workshop provided training in seismic waveform processing, visualization, and high-performance computing (HPC) waveform simulation. Fifty-five predominantly early-career participants—graduate students and postdocs—from the United States and 16 other countries attended. The workshop was the first of its kind to feature full access to HPC resources for research-grade example problems.

Trends indicate that high-performance computing simulations of seismic waves will become more common in research and seismic network operations.A few trends served as the backdrop for the meeting. Seismic data processing software and numerical codes for HPC simulation .... [full article]
