ISC-EHB Bulletin: event arrivals search
- arrival-times (all ISC-EHB arrivals)
- travel-time residuals (all ISC-EHB arrivals)
- time-defining phases
This is the standard search page for searching arrivals by station. To complete a search using customised shapes, an interactive search page is available:
About the event arrivals searchUse this page to search for arrivals/phase data from the ISC-EHB Bulletin. Data can be returned both for specific stations and for specific events. Returned data for individual arrivals at each station includes arrival times, travel-time residuals, a flag for time-defining phases, amplitudes, and the prime (ISC-EHB) hypocentre for each event.
- CSV formatted arrivals:
- IMS1.0 associated arrivals:
A fixed format, comma separated output, with one line per arrival. For a full explanation of each field, see the csv arrivals output page .
The International Monitoring System 1.0 (IMS1.0) is a fixed format output for exchanging data, developed for use in monitoring the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. The 'associated arrivals' is a subtype within this format that lists arrivals associated to an event. For a full explanation of the format, please view the documentation for IMS1.0 (pdf).
QuakeML is an XML representation of seismological data. Data are output as an XML stream using the QuakeML XML Schema, version 1.1. Similar to the CSV output, only the prime (ISC-EHB) origin is output for each event. This output is not designed for use in a browser and will cause browsers to crash for large queries. For a complete explanation of the schema, please view the documentation on the QuakeML site.
- Time-defining phases:
- Phase name:
If ticked, only arrivals which are time-defining will be returned. Time-defining phases are those phases which are used in the computation of the prime hypocentre.
By specifying a specific phase name (or list of phases), only arrivals from those phases will be returned (E.g. P, Pg, PKPdf, S, etc. ). The standard nomenclature for seismic phases approved by IASPEI is detailed in Storchak et al. (2003) and are listed here.
To specify stations to search for arrivals, you may either provide a station code (or a list of station codes in a comma separated list), or you may define a search region (rectangular, circular, global, Flinn-Engdahl region), which will search stations that have data within the ISC-EHB Bulletin.
Search region for EVENTS
There are four possible methods for defining a search region (rectangular, circular, global, Flinn-Engdahl region). Leaving fields blank, will automatically default to a global search. To interactively define a search region, using customised shapes, please use the interactive search page. The defined region is used to check only the prime hypocentre.
This is the start and end date to search for events. Only the prime hypocentre will be searched to match events - i.e. origin times for secondary hypocentres will not influence the results.
As some events have no determined depth, you may optionally choose to include events with unknown depths in the search. This will return events which match any selected depth constraint you enter as well as events with no depth.
As some events have no determined magnitude, you may optionally choose to include events with unknown magnitude values in the search. This will return events which match any selected magnitude constraint you enter as well as events with no magnitude value.
Limit events by magnitude for specific magnitude types. Due to the large number of magnitude types and the various notation used, the selected type will search all magnitudes of that type. E.g. MB will match all body-wave magnitudes: mb, mB, MB, mb1mx, etc.
