pod is a program that was originally called output and was written by Mark Wiederspahn. Its function is to produce a SEED (Standard for the Exchange of Earthquake Data) volume from a set of waveform files, their associated station/channel descriptions and response information.


rdseed reads and interprets Standard for Exchange of Earthquake Data (SEED) files. This is the format defined by the Federation of Digital Seismographic Networks (FDSN) to represent seismic data.


SAC (Seismic Analysis Code), previously SAC2000, is a general-purpose interactive program designed for the study of sequential signals, especially time-series data. Emphasis has been placed on analysis tools used by research seismologists in the detailed study of seismic events.


SOD is a program that automates tedious data selection, downloading, and routine processing tasks in seismology.
