About this book

This book provides a concise overview of the recent development in geocomputing, which covers the model construction and result visualisation, advanced computational theory and high performance software development on supercomputers and their applications in simulating geodynamics, crustal dynamics, earthquakes, tsunami and rock physics spanning different scales.

A DVD-ROM is attached together with this book for the image and animation files of the amazing simulation results.
