Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum, but I am hoping someone can help me :)

I am trying to convert ~10,000 individual MiniSEED files into SAC. I currently am able to do so one by one however this is insanely time consuming. I have the files all organized into annual folders 2014 - 2018. Is there any way to bulk process these for instance by folder.

I am not a novice with Ubuntu and I feel like there must be a simple solution by someone who knows better.

Thank you in advance for any help I am greatly appreciative.

Steve

      Hi Milton!

      Thank you so much for the quick reply, I am using mseed2sac software for the individual file conversion. I am clearly missing something obvious. I will look more closely.

      Take care
      Steve

    Hi Steve,
    Why not use mseed2sac (
    https://ds.iris.edu/ds/nodes/dmc/software/downloads/mseed2sac/) in shell
    script loop? easy and straightforward?
