Dear All, Today I was using the transfer command to remove the instrument from resp files and found something strange. The transfer evalresp couldn´t find the RESP file because of a time calculation error. My file started at 01:45:05.280 and the resp file, here is the output from SAC and the header from the RESP file: SAC> lh kzdate kztime FILE: 2008.330.01.45.05.2800.PD.EW01..HHZ.D.SAC - 1 ----------------------------------------------- kzdate = NOV 25 (330), 2008 kztime = … [more]

Hi I have a java based seismic file reading package called seisFile that handles SAC files amongst others (http://www.seis.sc.edu/seisFile.html). As part of that I have all the "enumerated header field values" as constants (ie static final fields). At the time I created this, they were all unique. I was looking at the sac docs today and noticed that there have been new values added (51-86). I was going to add them, but they are no longer unique. For example there are 2 IO "enumerated headers"… [more]

Hi all, I download some earthquakes from IRIS. I set time range as 100 before first P and 600 after first P. But the begin time(B in SAC header) in SAC file is zero. How could I get the correct time? (assume the time when earthquake happened is zero, then B should be a number like 600 or something) I think of a method that, first calculate the first P time as T1MARKER with TAUP, then change header B as (T1-100). But SAC cannot recognize the command---"ch b (t1-100)". How could I get it run? … [more]

Dear all, I work currently with a python script which invokes SAC to process some data. Since my database usually involves mseed files, I used "ms2sac" to convert them to sac files. However, I found out that during the processing steps Polezero files are also needed. Could someone tell me what are these files and how I can get them? Thank you in advance, Cheers, Wik.

Sir, I try to installed the SAC on Cygwin (Cygwin based SAC) but i am not able to installed it. I already registered on IRIS site to get SAC software. when i run ./configure, its work well but i try to compile by using make it show some error in src directory. please help to installed SAC on Cygwin plateform. regards srichand --- On Thu, 23/9/10, firstname.lastname@example.org <email@example.com> wrote: From: firstname.lastname@example.org <sac-help-request@… [more]

Greetings, Could someone please clarify the physical meaning of freqlimits when using TRANSFER function in SAC? I have read the documentation but for me it still is a little fuzzy. Does it mean that when we use certain freqlimits, for example freqlimits 0.01 0.015 100 200, the result we see is a narrow band passed record with corner frequencies of, in this example 0.15Hz and 100Hz? If that were the case and if I wanted to have the broadest bandpass possible, what would be the limits to use? Whe… [more]

please, I am new in this forum. But i am a user of SAC for some time now. I seek to know if i could have some software to convert data in sac format (output from SAC) into SEED and AH format. Also, I wish to know if there are softwares which can accept data in sac format as input to produce group velocity maps and inversed structures. hope you help me out.
