Good evening,
I have recently downloaded some old earthquakes which report in the header of the Vertical component this value for cmpinc (180), that probably means that this component is reversed.
How may I rotate only one component using the command “rotate"?
Thank you in advance
Marta

    Hi Marta,

    If I understood your issue, in your case since is the vertical component rotated 180º, I guess multiplying your seismogram by -1 would be enough, that is "r your_vertical_component.HHZ; mul -1".

    I hope it helps, and I apologize in advance if you already thought of this simple solution.

    Best regards,

    Félix
  • Hi Marta,

    Multiply the vertical trace by -1.

      Thank you Martha
      I already did that after submitting the request in the Iris but wanted to know if there is a command like rotate involving only the vertical component !
      Cheers
