Abstract

We have built user environments that simplify and provide interactive access to data, models, and compute resources as well as integrate various distributed computational services to study earthquake waveforms utilizing 3D models and compute resources within the Geosciences Network (GEONgrid) and national computational grids, such as TeraGrid. These data and computing services are implemented using a Web services approach and are incorporated in a service-based portal architecture. We then illustrate how these data, models, and services can be used to build distributed, interactive scientific applications.
