Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 1. Introduction Geohazard study in DiscoveryNet project Geohazard monitoring and assessment is one of the major application areas of DiscoveryNet project aiming to scientific knowledge discovery. Remote sensing A typical characteristic of geohazards is that movement and displacement will be produced. For instance, an earthquake produces co-seismic displacement while a landslide is characterised by slope failure and mess movement. Remotely sensed imagery data enable detection and measurement of these changes and thus provide vital information for hazard assessment and prevention. Algorithm and software development Fast imageodesy algorithms and software for high accuracy change detection have been developed and integrated into DiscoveryNet workbench. The massive data processing is possible only with advanced algorithms using powerful MPI/GRID computing.
Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 2. Imageodesy: the principle The Imageodesy technique (Crippen 1992; Crippen & Blom 1996) is capable of measuring the horizontal shift of image features, at a sub-pixel level accuracy, through normalized cross-correlation (NCC) between pre- and post-event images. This technique is a complementary to the well-established radar interferometry technique that is sensitive to vertical deformation. The major technical challenge of high accuracy imageodesy is the huge demand on computing to handle with massive data processing. We have developed software to implement the imageodesy on MPI parallel processor based on the conventional template normalised cross-correlation (NCC) algorithm. Furthermore we developed new algorithm and software based on phase correlation algorithm.
Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 2. Imageodesy: FNCC algorithm The NCC is defined as: The Fast NCC algorithm (FNCC) reduces large quantity of repeated operations and further improvement including conditional jumps and smart sampling avoids unnecessary operations over homogeneous image features. Thus the processing can be speed up by 5-10 times depending on the size of processing windows and the image characteristics.

Imageodesy: FNCC MPI implementation With an improved FNCC algorithm, operating on a MPI UNIX parallel computer with 24 processors, it takes 10 hours to complete imageodesy processing for one pair of cross-event Landsat-7 ETM+ Pan imagery data. The image size is 3.75GB after interpolating to 3m pixel size.

Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 2. Imageodesy: FNCC GRID implementation FNCC is a neighbourhood processing, each image line (the minimal data unit) must carry its neighbour image lines with it in order to conduct the processing. This wipe off 50% efficiency of FNCC and increases data communication by m times, where m is the search window size. The experiments on GRID using a small image (512 512) completed much slower than local processing using a single PC (2GHz processor). Submission larger images of a few thousands lines and columns to the GRID simply blocked the processing pipe line and failed to complete the task. The current status of GRID is not sufficient for the massive neighbourhood processing of FNCC imageodesy. The future of GRID for dealing with the type of processing of imageodesy lies on very fast high throughput network.
Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 2. Imageodesy: Phase Correlation algorithm We have implemented phase correlation algorithm for imageodesy operating on single UNIX and PC. By transforming the image data within a matching window into frequency domain via FFT, the phase correlation can pinpoint the best matching position directly as the peak of the overlap between the frequency distribution of the two images, without the time consuming searching.

Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 3. Case study: Co-seismic shift of Ms 8.1 Kunlun earthquake Kunlun Earthquake On 14 November 2001, at 09:26:18 UTC, an Ms 8.1 earthquake occurred in the East Kunlun Mountains, along the Kusai Lake segment of Kunlun fault. A 400 km surface rupture zone of E-W to WNW-ESE orientation was produced and, according to the field observations of Chinese scientists, the fault displacement was as large as 16.3 m (Lin et al. 2002, 2003). Remote sensing study Landsat TM and SPOT images have already been used to locate and map the visible surface rupture features (Fu & Lin 2003). SAR interferometry (InSAR) would be an ideal technique to reveal the stress field of the earthquake and to provide two-dimensional quantitative measurements of the fault movement. The lack of high quality cross-event ERS SAR fringe pairs for this region and in this particular time unfortunately hindered the use of interferometry.
Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 3. Case study data: ETM+ imagery Landsat ETM+ imagery data was chosen because of its large coverage, improved 15 m resolution panchromatic band, and the availability of suitable pre- and post-earthquake, almost cloud-free scenes. The output images of imageodesy are: X-shift, Y-shift and R (the NCC coefficient). Scene Names (Path/Row)Upper-Left corner coordinate (Lat/Lon, Dec. Deg.)

Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 3. Case study summary Kusai Lake scene: Fault is consistently in W-E to WNW-ESE direction. Left-lateral shift range 1.5 m~8.1 m, average 4.8 m, the maximum 13 m. Buka Daban scene: With the splayed nature of the fault in this section, the displacement patterns become complicated and stepwise. The average left-lateral shift over the broad fault zone is 4.6 m and ranges from 1.0 m to 8.2 m. Both sides of the faults moved toward the east. the south side of the fault has been displaced significantly to the right (east) relative to the largely stable, or slightly right-shifting, northern block. The relative movement of the fault is left-lateral and the south side of the fault is the active block.
Discovery Net a UK e-Science Pilot Project 4. Conclusions As an essential function of remote sensing data mining for geohazard study in DiscoveryNet project, FNCC imageodesy technique has been implemented on the workbench operating on MPI. The FNCC implementation on GRID yields a disappointing performance because the demand for data communication increases dramatically when the neighbourhood processing of imageodesy is distributed to many nodes. The phase correlation based algorithm is currently not operational on MPI or GRID processing mode. It is only more efficient when the forward and inverse FFT operations in phase correlation take less time than searching in FNCC. Our imageodesy results present the first regional 2-D picture of the co-seismic displacement of Kunlun fault as the result of the Ms 8.1 Kunlun earthquake, in a vast area, of about 320 km W-E and 180 km N-S. It is an important scientific knowledge discovery.
