Usage

makeDB(path=".", pattern="R", dirs="", kind = 1,
Iendian=1, BIGLONG=FALSE)
FmakeDB(LF2, kind =1, Iendian=1, BIGLONG=FALSE)

Arguments

path

character, Path to directory where files and directories exist

pattern

character, pattern for listing of files

dirs

character, vector of directories to be scanned

kind

kind of data: R(DAT)=0, segy=1; sac=2

Iendian

default=1Endian-ness of the data: 1,2,3: "little", "big", "swap". Default = 1 (little)

BIGLONG

logical, TRUE means long=8 bytes

LF2

list of files

Details

The files are typically located in a directory structure created by programs like ref2segy, a PASSCAL program for downloading data in the field. Each file contains one seismogram, with a header. makeDB reads in all the headers and creates a list of meta-data for later use in RSEIS.

Uses readBin to extract data in SAC format. user must know what kind of machine the data was created on for I/O purposes.

If data was created on a little endian machine but is being read on big endian machine, need to call the endian "swap" for swapping.

If data was created on a machine with LONG=4 bytes, be sure to call the program with BIGLONG=FALSE.

If the base directory, or the subdirectories, contain files that are not seismic data then care must be taken. Perhaps use FmakeDB to explicitly names the files for the DataBase.

If using FmakeDB a simple vecotr of files (full path names) should be provided.

The origin year, used for getting the Epoch year, is stored as attribute origyr.

Value

list:

fn

file name

yr

year

jd

julian day

hr

hour

mi

minute

sec

second

dur

duration, seconds

t1

time 1 in Epoch days

t2

time 2 in Epoch days

sta

station name

comp

component name

dt

sample rate, seconds

Note

Epoch times are used to accomodate problems where julian days cross year end boundaries, so that day 366 comes before day 1 of the next year.

The origyr, kind , Iendian, BIGLONG are stored as attributes in the Database.

## Not run: 

#####  set directory
path <- '/home/lees/Site/Santiaguito/SG09'
pattern <- "R0*"

###   get DB information
XDB  <-  makeDB(path, pattern, kind =1)

##### select a station
usta <- "CAL"
acomp <- "V"

#####   extract 24 hours worht of data
JJ <- getseis24(DB, 2009, 2, usta, acomp, kind = 1)


#####  plot 24 hours worth of data

pjj <- plotseis24(JJ, dy=1/18, FIX=24, SCALE=0,
FILT=list(ON=FALSE, fl=0.05 , fh=20.0, type="BP", proto="BU"),
RCOLS=c(rgb(0.2, .2, 1), rgb(.2, .2, .2))  )


###  window a small portion on 24 hour display
w <- winseis24(pjj)

###  open a new window
X11()
VNE <- c("V", "N", "E")
###  IJK <- c("I", "J", "K")

gsta <- c("CAL", "KAM", "DOM",  "LAV")

ucomp<-VNE

###  or:   ucomp<-IJK

###   set epoch day and get the times
 eday <- EPOCHday(w$yr, jd = w$jd, origyr = DB$origyr)

##  using epoch day, set times for beginning and end of window
        at1 <- eday$jday + (w$hr[1])/24
        at2 <- eday$jday + (w$hr[2])/24
###  extract data from the data base:
        GH <- Mine.seis(at1, at2, DB, gsta, ucomp)

###  show data:
        swig(GH)
