assimilation and understanding
- Compare theoretical forecasts of numerical simulation models to data observations
and use these comparisons as a basis to gain insight into the earthquake cycle
and earthquake behaviour. Provide feedback to the Simulation Working Groups
needed for the model refinement process. Data may include "real-time data"
and "static data". Examples include seismicity, laboratory/rock physics, crustal
deformation/GPS, geo-elasto-magnetic, electro-magnetic emissions, groundwater,
and earth structure.
Data inversion, pattern processing, data mining tools development and application.
