obspy.clients.neic.client.Client.get_waveforms

Client.get_waveforms(network, station, location, channel, starttime, endtime)[source]

Gets a waveform for a specified net, station, location and channel from start time to end time. The individual elements can contain wildcard "?" representing one character, matches of character ranges (e.g. channel="BH[Z12]"). All fields are left justified and padded with spaces to the required field width if they are too short. Use get_waveforms_nscl for seednames specified with regular expressions.

Notes

Using ".*" regular expression might or might not work. If the 12 character seed name regular expression is less than 12 characters it might get padded with spaces on the server side.

Parameters:
  • network (str) The 2 character network code or regular expression (will be padded with spaces to the right to length 2)
  • station (str) The 5 character station code or regular expression (will be padded with spaces to the right to length 5)
  • location (str) The 2 character location code or regular expression (will be padded with spaces to the right to length 2)
  • channel (str) The 3 character channel code or regular expression
  • starttime (UTCDateTime) Start date and time.
  • endtime (UTCDateTime) End date and time.
