Does the latest SAC "readgse" command pick up the station latitudes/longitudes/elevations from the STA2 header line of GSE2.0 files? If not, are there plans to incorporate this into "readgse" in upcoming versions? Regards, Sheila Peacock.

This is an update to my original message about "do file wild *SAC" problem. Katie Boyle helped me to figure out what was happening. So, the problem is with the sac memory limit. The script works fine with a few files but when I increase the number of them to 150, sac fails with the segfault. Apparently, "do file wild *SAC" wants to fit all *SAC data into the buffer and cannot. The data files are 1 sps, 2 hour long LHZs. Each file is 29K (29436) long. My sac version is the latest and greates… [more]
Oops.. Thanks for pointing that out, that was copy and paste error caused on my side. This is the correct version: do file wild *SAC setbb vert $file r %vert setbb station &1,KSTNM setbb otime &1,O evaluate to cotime %otime * (-1.0) ch ALLT %cotime IZTYPE IO setbb network &1,KNETWK setbb polezero %polezerod%%station%.%network%.PZ w %vert enddo Also, the SAC version I use is 101.3b Sorry about that, Igor On Tue, Jan 26, 2010 at 9:06 PM, Katie Boyle <Kboyle@lbl.gov> wrote: > i'm not sure if … [more]

Re: ppk? - Milton Plasencia - 2010-01-26 03:12:19
I would like to know how to draw a zero y-axis (in addition to the top and bottom axes) when using ppk. Thank you. Atte Hector Gz. Huizar
Hi all, I am using data collected with labview and saved as text files. I have to sets of data, the amplitude data set and a set of time intervals which are not even. I use readtable to import the data into sac and then write it as a sac file. If my data was evenly sampled, I would use delta in the header to give the time interval. Does anyone know how I can get the FFT of data whose delta is not constant, it I have a second file with time intervals? Thanks.

Hi all! I'm having problems right after the installation. I received a tarball "sac-101.3b.tar.gz" and followed the instructions in the email as well as those listed in $SACHOME/README Problem: SAC isn't executing despite following the installation instructions carefully.

Dear all, I'm trying to pick the amplitudes of the s and p arrivals. What I've been done so far is picking them using the command ppk and then positioning the cursor and pressing m. That draws a little box around the portion of the graph that contains the arrival. I thought SAC will store the info in the header but I can't find any variable with information of this specific portion of the graph. I'm new using SAC so I guess I am missing something important here. Do I have to set a blackboard va… [more]
Dear all, I need to plot several times the same recordsection (with ~250 files, and using SSS) in the following way: Need to make a cycle were 1) The first trace is red (for example) and all the other ones stay black Then I make the decision f I want to delete it or not 2) The second trace is red and all the other ones stay black Similarly I make the decision 3) The third trace is red and all the other ones stay black -........ ETC ETC I know everything else (decisions,… [more]
