Respected Sir/mam,
I have observed that; the "*scale*" header in the SAC file is equal to the "
*sensitivity*" header in the Pole-Zero file. I really want to know, what
these "scale" & "sensitivity" means??

Let's say, the "*Scale*" for a particular station= 7.867190e+08 & "
*Sensitivity*" mentioned in the Pole-Zero file= 7.867190e+08 m/s.....Does
it imply 7.867190e+08 counts= 1 m/s ???

Kindly answer to my query. I have attached a few screenshot for your

Thanking you in advance!!

Yours Respectfully,
