Greetings to all! I have two queries. 1. Picking the regional seismic phases: Are there any possibilities of marking the regional seismic phases using auto pick? 2. Velocity model in SSSTRAVELTIME: How to define the velocity model for computing the travel time apart from the pre-defined global velocity models (iasp91 and ak135)?

Hello SAC users I am trying to normalize some sac files. I know how to normalize to 1 using the max amplitude but I want to both max and min amplitude and thus normalize my negative amplitude to -1 and the positive to 1. Is it possible to do it in SAC? I let you a file to use as example. Thanks in advance, and I am sorry if this is not the proper way to ask for help. Joana Carvalho

Hello Sac Users I received an email from a fellow retired seismologist who has used SAC for decades and is a user of macros and Blackboard Variables. He encountered an apparent issue with large numbers not working. I have experimented and I think SETBB/GETBB don't seem to work for numbers >= 2^31 SAC> setbb ts1 3.14159 SAC> getbb ts1 ts1 = 3.14159 SAC> setbb ts2 2.0E+09 SAC> getbb ts2 ts2 = 2000000000 SAC> setbb ts3 2.2E+09 SAC> getbb ts3 ts3 = -2147483648 trying 2^31 -1 and 2^31 … [more]

Brian and George, I want to thank both of you for your timely and thoughtful replies! The suggested workarounds are great idea, and I have forwarded them to my fellow retiree as I doubt he reads the sac-help list and I have pointed him at the list. I am delighted to know that after 38 years of using SAC, that you are both devoting your time and effort to maintaining and improving SAC and helping so many users with your insight into SAC issues with the sac-help list. I hope the seismic resear… [more]

I understand the need for extended precision in the timing variables B, E, ... T9 However why was DELTA included? Is that ever a real problem? Also EVLO EVLA STLO and STLA are double precision. Is the computation of GCARC DIST AZ and BAZ now done internally in double precision, and if so, why are are they still single precision in the header. Bob Herrmann Saint Louis University
