Details

Data can be extracted from web site: http://www.globalcmt.org/CMTsearch.html

The file must be cleaned prior to scanning - on download from the web site there are extra lines on top and bottom of file. Delete these. Leave one line on the top that describesthe columns. Data is separated by blanks. The files have a mixture of dates - some with 7 component dates (YYMMDD and others with 14 components YYYYMODDHHMM these are read in separately. Missing hours and minutes areset to zero.
