Analysis procedures, hardware platforms and software systems for the analysis of digital topographic data, satellite images, and generic time series have been developed. These have been implemented in a distributed processing environment on commonly available platforms and are available over Internet. Contact lerneratldeo.Columbia.Edu for details. Our imaging analysis methodologies have been applied to the southern border regions of the former Soviet Union. This area contains some of the most interesting tectonics on the planet and until recently has been relatively inaccessible to modern field programs. We demonstrate how views of available digital data sets can be combined to yield new insight and overviews of tectonic setting. A spatial- and time-domain deconvolution methodology based on inverse theory, which offers the advantage of adaptation to noisy data and incorporation of scientific constraints has been developed. It is applied to the problem of singular deconvolution of noisy time series as an example.
