32. Wadati

This is a program to make Wadati diagrams and apparent velocity from a Nordic file with one or many events. The apparent velocity is calculated from the arrival times and the calculated epicentral distances as given in the S-file. The apparent velocity is thus approximate and affected by the location.
The purpose of the program is to calculate Vp/Vs values for individual events and calculate the average for a group of events. In addition, the program can calculate the apparent velocity for each event based on P or S-times. Wadati diagrams with plot can also be calculated directly from EEV.

The information can be used to obtain a first impression of crustal parameters. For each calculation, events can be selected based on: Minimum number of stations, maximum rms of the fit (S-P vs P, or arrival times), and minimum correlation coefficient of the fit. For the apparent velocity calculation, the data can also be selected in distance and azimuth ranges.

The output gives:

T0 : Wadati calculated origin time
N : Number of stations used for Vp/Vs
VPS : Vp/Vs ratio
NP : Number of stations for P- velocity
NS : Number of stations for S-velocity
AVSP: Average S-P times with sd
AVDI: Average distance with sd

The average Vp/Vs is calculated for the whole data set. Individual Vp/Vs values outside the range 1.53 to 1.93 are excluded. An output file wadati.out is generated. A minimum of 3 stations is required for an event to be used. Only same type phases are used (like PG and SG).
