Network Outage


Starting around 2017-02-17 16:20 UTC (11:20 EDT / 8:20 PDT) IRIS Data Services experienced a network outage. We are still looking into the cause of the outage and hope to be back online as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience to your workflow.

Software Metadata – Categories: Conversion Programs

The following Conversion Programs packages are available for download. Click the package name to access the download page.

Converts Mini-SEED to SAC format. An optional metadata file may be supplied that contains values for the SAC headers that are not available in Mini-SEED. This converter should work in Linux/Unix/MacOSX and Windows.

Known Issues: rdseed 5.3.1 is the current release and has four primary issues that IRIS DMC staff are looking into.

  1. compatibility issues with summary files produced by JWEED 4.1 (Linux)
  2. segmentation faulting when attempting to produce SAC files with user-compiled code coupled with a JWEED summary file
  3. user difficulty building rdseed from source using the latest gcc (Linux, Mac)
  4. gain of CSS output for infrasound channels off by 10^9

IRIS currently has limited resources to support rdseed and response time regarding rdseed issues may be longer than normal. Nonetheless, we are endeavoring to put out new releases to address these reported problems. Thank you for your patience.

rdseed is IRIS DMC`s legacy utility for reading SEED volumes, the FDSN-approved file format for representing and distributing digital seismic data. This utility allows the user to read the contents of the SEED file and convert it to many different output formats, extracting the data, station information, or instrument responses from the file.

Standing Order for Data (SOD) is a program that automates tedious data selection, downloading, and routine processing tasks in seismology.
