Abstract: A Discovery Net project that has been investigating the relationship between macro and micro-scale earthquake deformational processes has successfully developed and tested a geoinformatics infrastructure for linking computationally intensive earthquake monitoring and modelling. Measurement of lateral co-seismic deformation is carried out with imageodesy algorithms running on servers at the London eScience Centre. The resultant deformation field is used to initialise geo-mechanical simulations of the earthquake deformation running on supercomputers based at the University of Oklahoma. The paper describes detail of this project, initial results of testing the workflow, and follow-on research and development.
