The main aim of this project (joint project of ORFEUS UNILIV and NESC) is to remove the barrier of uptake to the seismology community of an application that allows analyses of seismic waveform data. This will be achieved by embedding this analysis application in a community gateway, which already exists in the form of the NERIES web portal. The important barriers to uptake are the installation and understanding of the analysis package, the difficulty in transporting large amounts of data as input to an analysis, and direct visualisation of the results. RapidSeis will overcomes these barriers. We will use it to generate intuitive interfaces to the analysis application in the form of self-contained web portlets.
These portlets will be directly embedded in the community gateway and link to the data available in the Orfeus Data Center; the primary European centre for this kind of data. All the data and computing will be orchestrated via our technology, and the results, e.g. graphs of waveforms,will be presented to seismologists via the NERIES web portal.
