During the time between the last and this meeting many of discussed functions have been implemented. The base level of joint-data optimizations is functioning. We could set up our own case studies to be worked on with Grond. With this group approach we found many different bugs, identified improvements for the general usability and greatly extended the content and look of automatic figures.

We used the start of the week with updates on our projects.

Andreas presents his data-driven source characterization based on near-field static displacement gradients and seismic backprojection results for the 2016 Muji earthquake.
Simon introduces his project on the Qaidam earthquake sequence 2003 to 2009 that he studies with Envista InSAR time-series. Simon's GROND results for a buried thrust-fautling demonstrates nicely the capability of the GROND optimization to sample bimodal parameter distributions. Marius shows the new earthquake scenario generator of Pyrocko Colosseo.

Otherwise we have been  9 to 5 busy with:

  • code fixing

  • code documentation

  • feature implementation

  • feature discussion

  • data preparing

  • data fixing

  • GROND configurations

and more of everything. Time rushed as usual.

During the Spring Hack 2018 we all made our working directories to comply with a common structure to better share projects, better identify and solve problems that arised for one or the other data set. We put our data sets on a GFZ machine to have a shared playground.

Sebastian and Marius presented a very nice new feature that eases greatly the visual inspection of Grond results: the Grond Report, which is a browsable folder of result figures and tables.


Participants: Henriette Sudhaus, Simon Daout, Sebastian Heimann, Andreas Steinberg and Marius Isken
