Currently does not read nor write moment tensors or focal mechanism solutions from/to Nordic files.


Pick time-residuals are handled in event.origins[0].arrivals, with the arrival.pick_id linking the arrival (which contain calculated information) with the pick.resource_id (where the pick contains only physical measured information).
