Abstract:
As SeisComP3 as an open-source project has grown in popularity in recent years, there has been the opportunity for 3rd party developers to augment SeisComP3 both with direct modifications and by integrating external tools and libraries with the core SeisComP3 systems and infrastructure. As a result of the success and popularity of SeisComP3, it was selected as the back-end processing system for the new Tsunami Warning System by NOAA/National Weather Service in the USA with the need to have all software components be open source. ISTI presents here a summary of the open source software components that were paid for by the US Government and have recently been contributed back to the SeisComP3 community. These modules include a Moment Tensor Processor, Finite Fault Calculator, and an Array Processor. Additional magnitudes include the wave magnitude which serves to calculate specific magnitudes (the mantle magnitude ‘Mm’, an “energy” magnitude ‘Me’, another version of the surface wave magnitude ‘Ms’, and a discriminating ration known as “theta”. Finally, core SeisComP3 modules (scevent, scautopick, scautoloc) were updated to find nearby cities, pick polarity and first motion, and to allow disassociation of manually rejected picks.
