Hi, I have a pole zero files to avoid instrument response from signal and I use the command like " transfer from polezero subtype pz_file ". Is this the true way to obtain signal which doesn't include instrument response. Or I must add " to vel " end of the command line ? Best regards, Fatih.

To remove the instrument response completely you need "to none" at the end of the "transfer" command. You might need to use "freqlimits" in your "transfer" command to limit the low-frequency part of the signal; and I have always found it necessary to run "rmean", "rtrend" and "taper" on a seismogram before attempting to remove the instrument response.

Hello, I have a question about the number of poles for a Butterworth filter when there are 2 passes. When n, the number of poles, is not specified, is the default value of 2 used? Does this mean there are 4 poles with 2 passes when n is not specified? Suppose n = 4 and p = 2. Are there 8 poles? Best regards, --Sierra

Recently I was installing SAC on my laptop running on UBUNTU but when I modified my ~/.bashrc file adding following two lines export SACHOME=/usr/local/sac source ${SACHOME}/bin/sacinit.csh and after saving the file. I run following command source ~/.bashrc the following error message come. No command 'setenv' found, did you mean: Command 'netenv' from package 'netenv' (universe) Could any one please help me sorting out the problem. Thanking you Abhey

Hello, I would like to know how to get the distance and azimuth of a station with respect to the hypocentral info, evla and evlo. I read in a sac file that came from IRIS. I then change the values of evla and evlo. I then listhdr inclusive to look at all the header values. The distance and azimuth are not updated. However I can get the distance and azimuth of a station with respect to an event when I download miniSEED data from another source and convert it to SAC format. I then change the v… [more]

I had a go some time ago to understand the meaning of RESP files and wrote some notes, which follow. Please note that they might not be correct, or might be incorrect for data from other stations or instruments. I was trying to establish the relationship between the parameters in RESP files and the parameters in headers of IMS (GSE)-format data from the CTBTO International Data Centre.

Hi, all, I want to know the meanings of each lines in the RESP.* files generated by RDSEED. Where can I find an instruction? Regards, Lee

Hi, all, Happy new year !!! I have a question about the amplitude ratios between two seismograms before and after removing the instrumental response. Assuming that zeros and poles of these two components (S1 and S2) are coincident, their normalization factors (A1 and A2) are different, and two seismograms after deconvolution of instrumental response are represented as S1_r and S2_r. So, do we have S1_r/S2_r = S1/S2 * A2/A1??? Regards, Lee
