I appreciate Bob's suggestions. Straightforward, succinct guidelines like
this are invaluable for newcomers like me. If I understand correctly, he
is striving for quality and uniformity of data. Ensuring that an
instrument is calibrated and processing parameters correctly set/optimized
is crucial to achieving that goal. On the other hand, it appears that
amateur instruments and processing environments are unique--so how does one
define and enforce a set of reasonable standards for data submission? I'm
too new to even guess at this point. But perhaps Bob is on the right track
with his suggestions.
Regarding event data, what would really be helpful is a guidebook with
examples to assist new people with understanding how to use their seismo
equipment. Examples: how to recognize actual events vs. background noise
and understand the intricacies of recording seismic events. Math and
engineering aren't my strong suits (I've got precious few of them anyway)
and need all the help I can get. Perhaps something like this already exists?
Just my $.02.
