Abstract

Seismic hazard assessment and risk analysis are critical for human life since these fields study and model expected earthquakes to produce seismic hazard maps and to determine the risk of damage from potential earthquakes to buildings, dams, etc. The Statistical Seismology Science Gateway, built on the gUSE framework, holds a comprehensive set of tools and models covering seismic data analysis, hazard assessment and risk analysis. It provides an environment in such a way that skilled users can experiment their own approaches by simply accessing the gateway services, while novice users can easily use existing applications. This chapter focuses on the development of the workflows implementing these tools and models as well as the portlets to access them. It also discusses how easily gUSE framework was customised to build this science gateway and how it is operated.
