Hi everyone Suddenly I'm having this problem with MERGE command and I don't know why. I tried to merge several SAC files using 'merge overlap average' however keeps appearing the following message: SAC> r *n 1305_2016.146.13.05.33.n 1311_2016.146.13.11.37.n 1400_2016.146.14.00.00.n 1500_2016.146.15.00.00.n 1600_2016.146.16.00.00.n 1700_2016.146.17.00.00.n 1800_2016.146.18.00.00.n 1900_2016.146.19.00.00.n 2000_2016.146.20.00.00.n 2100_2016.146.21.00.00.n 2200_2016.146.22.00.00.n 2300_2016.1...

Hi guys, I'm having troubles trying to merge a large number of noise files. I have SAC files of 1 hour each and I want to obtain first a file of a day and then a file of a week. It's the first time I'm using SAC, so my knowledge is limited. I'm trying to merge them however a message error keeps appearing: ERROR 1801: Header field mismatch: Time Sampling [DELTA]: 0.002000 0.010000 Does anyone know how to fix this time sampling mismatch? All help is welcome! Cheers!

Hi, I posted this question earlier and I was unable to get any feedback. I am using instrument corrected SAC files (attached) having file type m/s to create a stacked file. I am using "SUMSTACK" to stack the files as follows: SAC> r 2016.254.00.45.FARN3.BHE.corrected.bp.SAC 2016.254.00.45.FARN4.BHE.corrected.bp.SAC 2016.254.00.45.FARN5.BHE.corrected.bp.SAC SAC> sss Signal Stacking Subprocess.

Hi everyone I am having problem (probably) related to some maximum length of the seismic data within Sac. I have been dealing with some really crappy seismic data with messed-up timing. 3 Traces from the same sensor. The data had frequent gaps in them and for some reason, the gaps are occasionally of different lengths for different components. I have about 1 month of continuous record (100 Hz sampling). My timing correction included: 1. Merging all the files from one component together (ha... [more]

Hi, I am using "sumstack" to stack SAC files. I checked the header of the stacked file and the file type is time series file. I want to make spectrogram of ground motion (m/s) using stacked file. Is it possible to stack instrument corrected SAC files such that the stacked file represent ground velocity in meter/second. I would be grateful for any suggestion in this regard. Thanks Abhash Kumar

Can anyone help me in generating a H-K stack plot(Zhu and Kanamori) to compute poisson ratio from teleseismic receiver functions? Is there any routine on SAC to do it? Sincerely, Samarth

Hello, I have to convert my antelope database into sac files. I have been using db2sac without problem, but I am not sure db2sac can handle polarity reversal ( I have a bunch of L22 sensors for which I will have to correct for polarity). Since I couldn’t find anywhere if db2sac support this conversion, I have been trying to use rdseed v5.3.1. In order to populate the header I am using my dataless in this fashion: rdseed -d -o 1 -z 1 -f myday_volumes(miniseed) -g mydata.dataless. I can conve... [more]

Dear Madam/Sir, I have some problems in building SAC in cygwin. I have listed my questions in order as follows: 1. I am using Windows and I installed "cygwin". However, I could not open "aux" file in Windows and I tried to change its name as ",aux". In "Makefile" files I replaced "aux" with ",aux", however I think that I miss a point. How can i solve this "aux" problem? 2. My second question is ".dll" files are missed, how can I get them? Sincerely yours Ekin Ozlu Middle East Te... [more]

I’ve had this problem in SAC when I read in high sampling rate (1000 Hz) data. When I plot it, it looks like it didn’t read in correctly (see attached figure). Is this a memory problem?

Hi, I just installed SAC to my Mac running OS10.12 Sierra. The installation email says that the distribution runs on OS10.7-10.9. I am having problems reading in data and keep receiving the same error: ERROR 1318: Header in disk file is out of date Header version number is incorrect. Header seems byte-swapped -- byte-swap file and retry. I am wondering if this is due to the operating system or some other issue with my installation. Thanks, Isabel
