Hi,
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.
SAC/SSS> timewindow 0 359.99
SAC/SSS> sumstack normalization on
SAC/SSS> writestack 2016.254.00.45.FARN345.stack.SAC

I checked the header of the stacked file (attached) and the file type is
time series file instead of m/s. Also the time headers such as KZDATE,
KZTIME and IZTYPE that were present in the original SAC files are missing
from the stacked header list. I would be extremely grateful for any
suggestion on how to keep the file type same (m/s) and keep the time header
information (KZDATE, KZTIME, IZTYPE) during stacking.

Hi Abhash,
If you use seismograms recorded in m/s for stacking, of course the stacked
seismogram should be in m/s. After all, stacking is merely delaying and
summing traces.

Hi,
I am using "sumstack" to stack SAC files. I checked the header of the

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
