Hi, Data seems to be corrupted when using irisFetch and the SCEC data center. Below is a plot of the same data downloaded via irisFetch from the IRIS data center (top) and from the SCEC data center (bottom) (script attached).

Here is a simple test program based on the code that is used: package edu.iris.epo.jamaseis.dmc; import java.util.Date; import ... [more]
