Simple Ways to Search the SCEDC AWS Public Dataset

This page describes some easy ways to filter searches of the SCEDC dataset. Users can use the file naming convention to do some simple searches by time, station, or channel.
These examples use the aws client and output to an S3 bucket
If the list of days is more heterogeneous, it might be better to get a list first.
Development of search API is under investigation. Stay Tuned!

 

Examples


## gets all BH data from day 2016_001
aws s3 sync s3://scedc-pds/2016/2016_001 s3://your-bucket-name --exclude "*" --include "*BH* 

## gets all data from that 2016_001
aws s3 sync s3://scedc-pds/2016/2016_001 s3://your-bucket_name

## gets all GSC data from that 2016_001
aws s3 sync s3://scedc-pds/2016/2016_001 s3://your-bucket-name --exclude "*" --include "*CIGSC*" 

## use --dryrun flag to get a list without downloading data
aws s3 sync s3://scedc-pds/2016 s3://your-bucket-name --exclude "*" --include "*2016_001*/*CIGSC*"  --dryrun
