5.2.3 Getting data from ISC into SEISAN

ISC provides access to its data via the web page www.isc.ac.uk. SEISAN has facilities for converting ISC output from either the bulletin data base which contains all data (readings etc) or just the catalog which just has the main information corresponding to the SEISAN header line.

Search complete ISC bulletin

Go to Search the ISC Bulletin/Bulletin search Select criteria, like area, time etc. Note that if phase output is chosen, too much data could result and not all is output, so do not choose too much data. You now see output on the screen like

Save the screen output in a text file by copying and pasting using e.g. notepad or vi. In this example we put it into file isc.txt but it could be any name. With some browsers, there might be an option to copy directly to a text file. The default format on screen is the IMS1.0 short format which is the same as the IASPEI seismic format. SEISAN cannot read QuakeML format.

Convert with program NORIMS:


C:\seismo\WOR>norims
  Choose option:
      IMS1.0:SHORT -> nordic (1) or
      nordic -> IMS1.0:SHORT (2)
1
  IMS1.0:SHORT input file
isc.txt
  Which agency you prefer for nordic first header?
  3 chars....(ex. ISC) or enter for any

  Set no location flag (y/n=default)
