obspy.core.trace.Trace

class Trace(data=array(, []dtype=float64), header=None)[source]

Bases: builtins.object

An object containing data of a continuous series, such as a seismic trace.

Parameters:
Variables:
  • id A SEED compatible identifier of the trace.
  • stats A container Stats for additional header information of the trace.
  • data Data samples in a ndarray or MaskedArray

Supported Operations

trace = traceA + traceB
Merges traceA and traceB into one new trace object. See also: Trace.__add__().
len(trace)
Returns the number of samples contained in the trace. That is it es equal to len(trace.data). See also: Trace.__len__().
str(trace)
Returns basic information about the trace object. See also: Trace.__str__().

Attributes

__dict__
__doc__ str(object=’‘) -> str
__hash__
__module__ str(object=’‘) -> str
__weakref__ list of weak references to the object (if defined)
id Return a SEED compatible identifier of the trace.

Public Methods

attach_response Search for and attach channel response to the trace as
copy Returns a deepcopy of the trace.
count Return number of data samples of the current trace.
