Other Documentation - Video
A training video for RT130-to-SEED processing is now available. Based on the 2009 AGU Data Workshop presentation, the video is divided into three, 5-minute segments. Follow along with the text documents for an enhanced training experience.
- Clip 1 discusses batch files and rt2ms.
- Clip 2 demonstrates ckMseed, fixhdr, logpeek, pql, and log2miniseed.
- Clip 3 focuses on a few Antelope commands: dbbuild, dbe, miniseed2days, and mk_dataless_seed. Also mentioned is the PASSCAL ftp program, gui_DoFTP.
