5.11 Known problems in SEISAN

This list describe some of the known problems in SEISAN:

1:
Channels with orientation code 1 and 2 are handled as N and E. If the orientation of 1 and 2 i s off North and East the estimated azimuth will be wrong.
2:
The Nordic format (Appendix A) does not include location id. One is thereofre n ot able to distinguish phase readings done on stations with two one more similar channels with differen location id.
3:
The iterative inversion done by the location program HYPOCENTER, does in some cases end up in a local minimum and not the best solution. See page 104.
4:
If waveform data from a three component sensor is rotated it is assumed that the response is t he same on all three rotated channels (Z,R,T).
5:
The Nordic format (Appendix A) does not include instrument code. So, if a station is equipt with both a seismometer HHZ and a acceleroemter HNZ, one will not be able to distinguish between phase readings.

Other known problems are listed in the index.
