3. Installation

SEISAN has been tested and compiled for Windows (/Vista/7/8/10), Solaris, Redhat Linux and MacOSX. The SEISAN GUI "Seisan Exporer" is provided for Windows, it must be compiled for Linux and it has not been tested for Solaris or MacOSX.

Upgrade from previous versions

Before you start, take a backup copy of your DAT directory. Note that when you upgrade, many parameter files will be overwritten so make sure old parameter files are copied before putting in a new version of SEISAN. The most important are in DAT: STATION0.HYP, SEISAN.DEF, MULPLT.DEF. Also the Unix setup file SEISAN.csh and SEISAN.bash is overwritten. You may also want to keep copies of PRO, LIB and INC to keep a copy of the old source code, especially if you have done any modifications to the code. You can keep almost all of your parameter files, only SEISAN.DEF has been changed. Check this file and change to your system. Some individual program parameter files like for SPEC have changed.

How to get SEISAN

SEISAN can be downloaded using a browser from ftp://ftp.geo.uib.no/pub/seismo/SOFTWARE/SEISAN/ or on command line with ftp ftp.geo.uib.no login is ftp and password is your email address. On the AFTP server go to /pub/seismo/SOFTWARE/SEISAN. Use binary mode for the compressed files (tar and zip). Before copying, check the readme file for latest updates, changes and current content of the directory. The directory will at least contain the following files:

seisan_X.Y_.unix.tar.gz a compressed tar file, whole distribution with executables and test data, X.Y stands for the latest distribution number and Unix for the respective Unix system (solaris or linux).
seisan._X.Y.exe Windows distribution an install file
seisan_X.Y.pdf The SEISAN manual, Adobe PDF
seitrain_X_Y.pdf SEISAN training course
testdata_X.Y.tar.gz SEISAN data for the training course

Alternatively SEISAN might be obtained on a CD with the same content as above (write to
jens@geo.uib.no).

Section 3.9 gives additional information about modifications and recompilation.
