Hello,Would you please help me to read the files related to an event by means of SAC 's 'READCSS' command. In CSS format, there is a folder including different files and folders, which is a little bit confusing. I read the IRIS manual for this topic but still the usage is vague for me. Thanks in advance, Makki

Hello, I am amateur in SAC. In order to understand how to use READCSS I read the manual in, however I cannot figure out much about it. There is a folder for some recorded events in CSS format. This folder consist of different files that really make me confused. Would you please help me to make this problem more tangible. I find the command as follows: sac2000             ### starts sac2000 readcss file.wfdisc ### read the wfdisc an… [more]

In decoding the date format in SAC Pole Zero files produced by rdseed, a time of Hour = 24, Minute=60, Seconds = 60.99999 is encountered. Should an hour of 24 add 1 day to the date? Should 60 minutes add 1 hour to the number of hours? For instance, in the case of "1996.", should it be decoded to: Year = 1996 Month = 2 Day = 3 Hour =1 Minutes = 1 Seconds = .99999 Alternatively, how is "1996-02-02T24:60:60" as shown in the file below, to be decoded?

Rdseed was version 5.3.1 installed in a Linux: Fedora 20.

Dr. PLASENCIA LINARES, Again, thank you for your reply. I will use the start time, sample rate and number of samples from the SAC file to determine the applicable Pole-Zero duration. This end date numbering only becomes a problem if a later Pole-Zero file shows a start date before the end of the Pole-Zero file with Hours=24. I am slowly verifying details, Mike Padgett From: Milton Plasencia [] Sent: Tuesday, April 22, 2014 2:35 AM To: Mike Padgett Cc:… [more]

Hello all, I am hoping that someone can walk me through the installation process. I am running OS 10.6.8 and I've gone through the steps in the README file several times, but I haven't had any luck completing the installation. I always get the error: -bash: sac: command not found or or ERROR: Environmental variable SACAUX not defined. Many thanks, Nicholas Cline

Below is a Pole-Z file for network=CI, Station=PAS, channel=VHZ. It was output from rdseed. Questions: 1. Is the appropriate equation from "Pole-Zero Representation for Analog Stages," page 159, equation 6? 2. Is the CONSTANT in the file In (+1.702831e+13) = Sd*A0? 3. How do INSTGAIN and A0, in the file relate to Sd, A0 and the CONSTANT value of +1.702831e+13? Thanks in advance, Mike Padgett * ********************************** * NETWORK (KNETWK): CI * ST… [more]

For waveform data that downloads using Breq-Fast with Quality=Best, rdseed produces IDEP=Unknown and a type of "Time Series." For these networks, what are the time series units and have instrument responses been removed? Is raw data available that could be used to verify calculations? Mike Padgett

The SAC manual lacks details when some of the seed files are a little ambiguous. For instance: For IU, QSPA, Location=20, VHZ seed file: SAC> read 2008. SAC> LH lists: IFTYPE = TIME SERIES FILE IDEP = UNKNOWN DEPMIN = -1.089e+08 DEPMAX= 1.967e+08 What are these units? If these units are displacement in nano-Meters, then has an instrument response been applied or must one be applied with something like "transfer evalresp to none ..… [more]

Can anyone help me in generating a H-K stack plot(Zhu and Kanamori) to compute poisson ratio from teleseismic receiver functions? Is there any routine on SAC to do it? Sincerely, Samarth

Dear Sac users, Sorry for adding more questions on instrument response. We have been trying to do instrument response removal and have had the following concern: I was hoping you might be able to clarify an issue I'm having with the SAC TRANSFER function. In this example, I will use a polezero file, but I found the same problem with response files. My objective is to go from a velocity time series record to a velocity time series record with a removed instrument response. There are two synt… [more]
