Hi

I have some data recorded in particle velocity and I need to convert it to particle displacement and remove the instrument response. These are 30 Hz geophones used to capture high frequency microseismic data.

The script I have is :

read $f
rtrend
int
transfer from polezero subtype polesandzeros to none freqlimits 0 30 490 500
w append .comp

where my polezero file is a simple,

ZEROS 2
0 0
0 0
POLES 2
-41.47 183.88
-41.47 -183.88
CONSTANT 1

My concern is that I am converting to particle displacement twice in the process, firstly by integrated and then by removing the instrument response. It's not clear from the help files how to specify the from format before the to format in addition to the polezero file.

Thanks

James

  • Hi,

    To answer in short you can do:

    read $f
    rtrend (or rmean)

    transfer from polezero subtype polesandzeros to none freqlimits 0 30 490 500

    w append .comp


    where your polesandzeros will be:

    ZEROS 3

    0 0

    0 0

    0 0

    POLES 2

    -41.47 183.88

    -41.47 -183.88

    CONSTANT 1


    In this way you to obtain displacement directly,


    not is the same int and then removing the instrument response,

    int is in the time domain instead add a 0 in your response files is

    spectral integration.


    With 2 zeros and 2 poles you response curve have the following aspect:

    -------------------------------

    /

    /

    is open in high frequencies and you can set your freq. limits very high!!!


    HTH,
