ANTELOPE and SAC - An Overview and Short Tutorial from a User's Perspective
Dr. Heather DeShon, Southern Methodist University
Seismologists’ tools of the trade are ever expanding as new technology is adopted to efficiently analyze increasing amounts of continuous data. It can be overwhelming for those new to the field, and for those well ensconced, to sort out the pros and cons of available software packages. This webinar will provide an overview and brief tutorial on two commonly used software packages available through IRIS. Seismic Analysis Code (SAC) has a long history of use in the US and provides a powerful set of analysis tools and a common data format for time series data. Antelope is a system of modules designed to acquire, distribute, archive and process environmental data. IRIS, through agreement with Boulder Real Time Technology, provides Antelope to member institutions for research purposes and to streamline the acquisition and archiving of seismic data. These software packages can be used together, and with other programs such as Matlab, to view, manipulate and analyze seismic and other time series data. The webinar is intended as an introduction to each package from a user’s perspective. Tutorials will focus on how SAC and Antelope can be used to organize and analyze local earthquake data recorded by temporary seismic experiments and how to integrate temporary network data with EarthScope Transportable Array and regional broadband seismic network data. The slides will include links to other, more complete self-guided tutorials available online.
