Advances in Computational Seismology
Session Description:

Over the past few decades, quantitative seismology has provided us with a good understanding on the average and smooth properties of both earthquake sources and the Earth's elastic and anelastic structures. As a result, there has now been a growing demand on seismologists to consider more realistic source and structural models for which wavefield solutions can only be obtained through certain efforts in theoretical approximation and/or numerical computation. Recent advancements in earthquake source physics, three-dimensional wavefield simulations, and seismic tomography, coupled with the availability of powerful computers, have also pushed quantitative seismology into one of the fastest growing field in seismology and opened up many new opportunities and chanllenges to both seismologists and computational experts.


In this session we invite papers on all research topics in designing earthquake source and structural models to interprete seismic observations, including the development of new theories or numerical algorithms and the application of established ones to model earthquakes' kinematic and/or dynamic source processes, seismic wave propagation in elastic and/or anelastic media, site effect to ground motion, as well as using these modeling tools to solve the inverse problems for earthquake sources and the earth's elastic and/or anelastic structures.
