The RapidSeis pilot project has reached its end, and has been presented at the RapidSeis worshop in Liverpool:
- The RapidSeis workshop (12/13th November 2009) was the culmination of a 6 month pilot project to investigate the use of 'virtual' computing in seismology. The project was a collaboration between the Seismology Group (University of Liverpool), National e-Science Centre (University of Edinburgh) and the Orfeus Data Centre (de Bilt, Netherlands). The original idea stemmed from the plug-in functionality of the seismological data analysis application (SDX) which serves as the back-end processing system of the RapidSeis system. RapidSeis extended this concept so that plug-ins could be created, edited and executed within portlets accessed over the web. Thus the functionality of SDX could be altered on the fly via the web. Data were supplied to SDX from the user's NERIES Data Portal cart; the data were selected using the series of tools available within the Data Portal. The RapidSeis portlets were generated by the Rapid system, and were hosted within the NERIES Data Portal. The editor and executor portlets, and the processing sub-system, ran on hardware at the University of Liverpool. -taken fromhttp://pcwww.liv.ac.uk/~aeh/Meetings/rapidseisws.htm ,
