By Andrea Donnellan, John Rundle, John Ries, Geoffrey Fox, Marlon Pierce, Jay Parker, Robert Crippen, Eric DeJong, Ben Chao, Weijia Kuang, Dennis McLeod, Mitsuhiro Matu'ura, Jeremy Bloxham
Issue Date:January 2004
pp. 36-44
<p>The article examines present computational strategies for modeling the earth's interior structure and dynamics on high-performance computing systems such as the Japanese Earth Simulator. Modeling efforts currently underway focus on problems such a...
Forecasting Earthquakes: The RELM Test
Found in: Computing in Science & Engineering
By Michael Sachs,Donald L. Turcotte,James R. Holliday,John Rundle
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 43-48
Earthquakes don't have precursors that can be reliably used for earthquake prediction. However, distributions of earthquakes (seismicity) can be used to forecast an earthquake hazard. These distributions in space, time, and magnitude can be studied in a va...
A Distributed Approach to Computational Earthquake Science: Opportunities and Challenges
Found in: Computing in Science & Engineering
By Andrea Donnellan,Jay Parker,Margaret Glasscoe,Eric De Jong,Marlon Pierce,Geoffrey Fox,Dennis McLeod,John Rundle,Lisa Grant Ludwig
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 31-42
Advances in understanding earthquakes require the integration of models and multiple distributed data products. Increasingly, data are acquired through large investments, and utilizing their full potential requires a coordinated effort by many users, indep...

Building Sensor Filter Grids: Information Architecture for the Data Deluge
Found in: Semantics, Knowledge and Grid, International Conference on
By Geoffrey C. Fox, Mehmet S. Aktas, Galip Aydin, Andrea Donnellan, Harshawardhan Gadgil, Robert Granat, Shrideep Pallickara, Jay Parker, Marlon E. Pierce, Sangyoon Oh, John Rundle, Ahmet Sayar, Michael Scharber
Issue Date:November 2005
pp. 2
We discuss a general architectural approach to knowledge and information management and delivery in distributed systems. Our approach is based on the recognition that time-stamped, streaming information message units form the core of seemingly disparate sy...
