RapidSeis: Rapid Portals for Seismological Waveform Data

Final project report for JISC, with links to all individually created deliverables and progress posts. RapidSeis has produced a scientific gateway via a web portal that allows seismologist to pick up data from Orfeus—the central repository for earthquake data in Europe—and then run several analyses on these data. Advanced users can also create new analyses and share these with all the other users.

When an analysis is run, data is extracted from the earthquake data stores in Europe and transferred to the University of Liverpool where the analysis is performed on a computer cluster. Once an analysis finishes, its results in the form of waveforms is send to the portal for the user to view and download.
