Hi, In order to make the B and KZTIME of the three components consistent, I conducted "synchronize" command. The SAC informed: ERROR    0: Resulting error from shift exceeded tolerance (1e-6): 0.0005. Could you tell me what the error is and how can I fix it, please? The attached files are the original files that yielded errors. Thank you!

Hi, I am using SAC on debian and I have encountered a problem using the MERGE function. The problem I have is the same as the one discussed 2015 : My problem is that the MERGE option GAP interp does not works correctly. I have attached you three files, m1.SAC, m2.SAC and m1m2.SAC the result from MERGE gap interp overlap average. I cannot use gap zero because the signals are not centered in zero and have a different mean. One solution could be to… [more]

Hello again Kris, In that case your PZs file should reflect that (see the INPUT UNIT), which would translate into modifications of SENSITIVITY and A0 based on instrument specification.

Hello, I have some IRIS data converted to SAC format along with the corresponding polezero files and want to use "transfer" along with the pzfiles to perform the deconvolution to remove instrument response. I know that the SAC transfer function is expecting a displacement input. If I am using "TRANS FROM POLEZERO S %pzfile to NONE" or "TRANS FROM POLEZERO S %pzfile to VEL" and my input actually is a displacement, I expect the output to be the displacement for the first command and velocity … [more]
