Hi, I am learning SAC, when I input 'plot', the sentence of ' X11 Screen does not exist' shows up and SAC will quit automatically. May I know how to solve the problem? I am using the remote window connecting to the Linux system, does it matter the ' plot' command and X11 screen? I appreciate your help. Thanks Tracy

Dear All, I was wondering how one qualifies to be able to download SAC. I’ve been using SAC for over 25 years while employed under the EQ Hazards program at the USGS, and subsequently while at the NOAA/NWS/Pacific Tsunami Center, in Hawaii. I continue to perform research in Seismology, using SAC. (For example, see some of my references ** below). How should I go about qualifying to be able to continue using SAC? Thanks you!
