Computational methodologies play an increasingly important role in Earth sciences. However, Earth science curricula in general often do not equip scientists with the necessary background in mathematical and computational aspects of the rapidly expanding field of simulation technology.
This lack of preparation applies in particular to the field of computational seismology. Despite the fact that the same numerical methodologies (e.g., finite differences, finite/spectral elements) are used in various domains (e.g., exploration seismics, volcanology, global seismology, earthquake physics), there often has been little interaction and exchange of experiences among researchers working in these different domains.
