I am petitioning the help of SAC users to understand pick error. The intial phase of the project is to compare unfiltered events picked by different users. While this is more a test of the users ability to pick seismograms, at a later time we will incorporate other software and determine if there is a bias in the methodologies of establishing picks made by different software, along with algorithms used to process the events with in a software package. We first need to establish a base line and I encourage all that have 20-40 minutes to pick the intial data set. Please contact me at cpzeiler<at>miners.utep.edu to recieve the SAC waveforms and feel free to visit the project page at http://www.geo.utep.edu/pub/zeiler/SPEAR.html.
Thank you for your consideration and contributing to the seismological community,
