Antelope Strikes Back: Using the Perl and Matlab Interfaces to Your Advantage
Dr. Heather DeShon, Southern Methodist University


Seismologists’ tools of the trade are ever expanding as new technology is adopted to efficiently analyze increasing amounts of continuous data. Antelope is a system of modules designed to acquire, distribute, archive and process environmental data. Boulder Real Time Technology provides a free software license to US institutions of higher education for research purposes and to streamline the acquisition and archiving of seismic data. The talk will focus on how to use the Perl and Matlab interfaces to forward seismic research. Specific examples are culled from the speaker’s experience recording and studying local earthquakes using IRIS USArray/PASSCAL experiments. The tutorial will focus on 1) how to use the Perl interface to reformat hypocenter data for use in external packages, 2) how to integrate temporary network data with EarthScope Transportable Array and regional seismic network data using the Perl interface, and 3) how to use the Matlab interface to expand on data processing capabilities.

This webinar is a follow-up to the 2012 webinar "Antelope and SAC: An Overview and Short Tutorial from a User’s Perspective" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZeUvHkOOAM

Basic familiarity with Antelope is assumed.
