Trace-class: Class '"Trace"'

Description Objects from the Class Slots Methods Note Author(s) Examples

Description

A Trace object containing a seismic trace – a continuous timeseries.

Objects from the Class

Objects occupy the traces slot of a Stream-class object and are typically populated by calls to getDataselect.

Slots

id:

Object of class "character": Unique "SNCL" identifier specifying the Network, Station, Location, Channel and Quality factor associated with this trace: eg. AK.PIN..VEA.M. The id is generated automatically when the trace is first created and is intended for read only.

Sensor:

Object of class "character": Instrument name.

InstrumentSensitivity:

Object of class "numeric": The total sensitivity for a channel, representing the complete acquisition system expressed as a scalar. Equivalent to SEED stage 0 gain.

SensitivityFrequency:

Object of class "numeric": The frequency at which the total sensitivity is correct.

InputUnits:

Object of class "character": The units of the data as input from the perspective of data acquisition. After correcting data for this response, these would be the resulting units.

stats:

Object of class "TraceHeader": Container with metadata information describing the trace. (see TraceHeader-class)

data:

Object of class "numeric": Vector of data values.

Methods

as.vector

signature(x="Trace"): returns the data slot; equivalent to x@data

DDT

signature(x="Trace", demean="logical", detrend="logical", taper="numeric"): returns a new trace that has been 'cleaned up' for further processing by applying demean, detrend, and taper techniques (see DDT)

envelope

signature(x="Trace"): returns the envelope of the seismic signal (see envelope)

isDC

signature(x="Trace"): returns TRUE if trace data consist of a DC signal

length

signature(x="Trace"): returns the length of the data; equivalent to length(x@data)

max

signature(x="Trace"): returns the maximum value of the data; equivalent to max(x@data)

median

signature(x="Trace", na.rm="logical"): returns the median value of the data; equivalent to median(x@data)

mean

signature(x="Trace"): returns the mean value of the data; equivalent to mean(x@data)

min

signature(x="Trace"): returns the minimum value of the data; equivalent to min(x@data)

multiplyBy

signature(x="Trace", y="numeric"): returns a new Trace where the data have been multiplied by y (see multiplyBy)

plot

signature(x="Trace"): default plot of the Trace data with appropriate labeling

rms

signature(x="Trace"): returns the Root Mean Square amplitude of the data (see rms)

rmsVariance

signature(x="Trace"): returns the RMS variance of the data (see rmsVariance)

sd

signature(x="Trace", na.rm="logical"): returns the standard deviation of the data; equivalent to sd(x@data)

slice

signature(x="Trace", starttime="POSIXct", endtime="POSIXct"): returns a new Trace subset of an existing Trace (see slice)

STALTA

signature(x="Trace",staSecs="numeric",ltaSecs="numeric",algorithm="character", ...): returns the STALTA picker result (see STALTA)

triggerOnset

signature(x="Trace", picker="numeric", threshold="numeric", ...): returns the time or index of an event onset as determined by the STALTA picker (see triggerOnset)

Note

The Trace object is inspired by the Trace class found in the python ObsPy package (https://docs.obspy.org/packages/autogen/obspy.core.trace.Trace.html).
