Hold on a minute... I want my data in SEG-Y format

 

All data requests of PH5 format data sets are fulfilled as either SEG-Y or PASSCAL SEG-Y.

PH5: Why Another Archival Data Format?

 

           

       The impetus to provide a new data format for archiving stems from the inherent limitations with respect to the use of SEG-Y as a data archiving format, limitations such as: requiring vetted meta-data prior to converting the data into SEG-Y files, un-editable meta-data within the file, and inflexible, static data gathers.

What was the Data Archiving Workshop all about?

PASSCAL provides a valuable service to the scientific community by loaning seismometers, data recorders, and other equipment to professional researchers. After the hardware installation and recovery for each experiment, the raw data are harvested from every recording disk. Sometimes there are thousands of them. The raw files are gathered and converted into standard forms called SEED or ph5 formats. The final phase of the research process, which all our users consent to when they request our equipment, is the submission of their data results for archiving at the IRIS Data Management Center. It is not always a straightforward conversion, especially for new users and students. That's when the PASSCAL Data Group steps in to help.
