12 Seismic Data Display

An X-windows tool Suxwigb is available from the Center for Wave Phenomena at Colorado School of Mines. Seismic Unix, or SU, is a public domain seismic trace processing package of which Suxwigb is a part.

This seismic trace display has the ability to display wiggle traces and in/out zoom. This is a public domain software product and is included with the codes of this chapter. The input file required by Suxwigb is generated by ftn2su and is an unformatted Fortran file. The Ftn2su file is a formatted Fortran file organized trace by trace. These input files are quite large and SU permits Unix piping of process output.

The reader is encouraged to test seismic display before proceeding.
