Dear List members. I am a new user of SAC. I have faced some problems during SAC installation.

Devel: * gcc-g++ * libncurses-devel * make * readline Libs: * sunrpc X11: * xorg-x11-devel then I typed X, a blank window was appeared on my screen where I couldn't write anything.

Hello, Is there a command in SAC to plot N seismograms (let's say 10) at a time out of M (let's say 100)? So with this I would get 10 displays of 10 waveforms. Thanks! Igor

Hi, There is a small bug of command traveltime. Run traveltime like below, SAC> fg seis SAC> traveltime MODEL IASP91 PICK 0 PHASE Pn Sn traveltime: depth: 15.000000 km Error: can't find iaspmodel header file "/opt/sac/aux/tables/IASP91.hed" SAC itself is case insensitive,but Linux is case sensitive. This command tries to look for an auxiliary file in Linux, so the model names, iasp91 and ak135, should be in lower case. The document of traveltime says, INPUT ----- :MODEL: IASP91 [default]… [more]

I am working on a local magnitude project and I am having a hard time with the WA correction. I am using the evalresp option and the response file which I downloaded from the IRIS website. My code is as follows: r ASTN* trans from evalresp fname RESP.ASTN.ET to wa I have a few questions: What are the units of the Wood-Anderson correction? I am getting conflicting answers. Also, I know there is a constant which is important, but is that constant found/calculated when I use the evalresp op… [more]

Hi everybody, I am trying to write over one sac file, but the LOVROK is FALSE. When I try to use "r $sac_file; chnhdr LOVROK TURE; write append .OK" or "r $sac_file; chnhdr LOVROK 1; write append .OK", they both don't work. Does anybody know why? Thanks in advance! Liping Fan

Dear all, can someone tell me whether there is a correction for earth ellipticity when the epicentre-station distance and azimuth are worked out by SAC for various purposes? Thanks. Sheila Peacock Blacknest.

Hi SAC help, I have a macro which tells SAC to run an executable. This executable requires input. The macro as I was given it is structured as follows: echo on rh *.?[LH]? setbb dp &1,evdp setbb del &1,gcarc $run /space3/cms78/scripts/unpacking_preprep/src/ttimes P <------ input into the executable S %dp %del -10 -10 <------input ends $endrun quit Running this macro produces a segmentation fault on my version of SAC (101.4 64 bit Ubunt… [more]

Hi all I'm trying to located a large number of events using hypoinverse. Each event directory contains a number of .sac files with the picks etc. contained in it. I would like to access the pertinent header information and write it to a hypoinverse phase input file. I realize there are ohpf/whpf/chpf commands and the ability to write picks to a hypoinverse file during plotppk, but given the number of events, I would like to automate the task by either a macro or a stand-alone program (sac2hypo… [more]

Dear sac users, I have teleseismic events in sac data format and I would like perform deconvolution procedure within the radial and vertical components but I having and strange error I would like to mention here in case someone has come across before. first of all every things looks fine with the data headers all fine.
