# Point Source¶

## SISMOWINE WP2_LOH1¶

SISMOWINE is intended as a long-term interactive web interface for verifying numerical modeling methods in seismology. Numerical-method developers and numerical modelers may compare their solutions with other solutions. SISMOWINE is a continuation of the original SPICE Code Validation interface established within the 6th Framework Programme project.

LOH1 is used as an example here to illustrate the implementation of source point for earthquake nucleation in SeisSol. The details of the LOH1 model can also be found at .

The model uses Right-handed Cartesian, x positive North, y positive East, z positive downward, all coordinates in meters. The source is buried at 2000 m in a half-space Earth (Figure [fig:loh1]. The top layer is 1000 m thick and the bottom layer is 33000 m. The material parameters are listed in Table [table:loh1].

Vp (m/s) | Vs(m/s) | density | Qp | Qs | |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

layer | 4000 | 2000 | 2600 | Inf | Inf |

half-space | 6000 | 3464 | 2700 | Inf | Inf |

## Point source input¶

The point source needs to be turned on in *parameter.par* file.

```
&SourceType
Type = 50
FileName=’LOH1_source.dat’
/
```

The source input file can be found at . Duration of the source is 4 seconds.
