Abstract:

The primary intention of this report is to provide a comprehensive user manual for the Extended Interactive Seismic Processing System ISPSE. ISPSE supports an interactive graphics environment on the PDP-15 computer located at the Seismic Data Analysis Center SDAC for the purpose of analyzing long-and short-period seismic waveforms. In addition to general signal analysis functions, ISPSE demonstrates the feasibility of utilizing interactive graphics for short-period event discrimination as described in the report entitled Documentation of the Extended Interactive Seismic Processing System ISPSE Shaub, et al., 1977. This report discusses system features, supplemental to that documentation, to ensure optimal utilization of ISPSE for seismic problem solving. These features include a programmable mode of operation by which the user may define standard seismic processing tasks on-line and an interpretive high level interactive Seismic Programming Language ISPL with which a user may define functions that access, perform computation upon, and display seismic data in tabular and graphic form for evaluation and analysis.
