As exemplified in a state-of-the-art bridge-foundation-ground model simulation, a suite of new visualization techniques let scientists study seismic waves and interactively investigate and explore their data. In so doing, the techniques further scientific understanding and thus facilitate the development of new methods to protect real-world infrastructures against otherwise devastating earthquakes.
