Abstract:

For a number of years, the Nuclear Monitoring Research Office NMRO has sponsored the development of tools and techniques which have been of value in advancing seismological research. But only with the development of large- database techniques has it been possible for seismologists to do meaningful analytical work over the vast quantities of data which represent seismic activity. Instruments, installed world-wide, detect, acquire and measure seismic readings. And computers are employed in virtually every aspect of collecting, analyzing, processing and storing seismic waveform data. At CCA, the Data computer MARILL and STERN was developed under ARPA funding to function as a first-of-a-kind network data utility for the support of very large databases, allowing shared remote access by heterogeneous computers in a network environment. The Datacomputer thus provides the facility required to store online the very large amounts of seismic data being collected.
