Seismic Data Quality Assurance Using IRIS MUSTANG Metrics

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

Seismic data quality assurance involves reviewing data in order to identify and resolve problems that limit the use of the data – a time-consuming task for large data volumes! Additionally, no two analysts review seismic data in quite the same way. Recognizing this, IRIS developed the MUSTANG automated seismic data quality metrics system to provide data quality measurements for all data archived at IRIS Data Services. Knowing how to leverage MUSTANG metrics can help users quickly discriminate between usable and problematic data and it is flexible enough for each user to adapt it to their own working style.
This tutorial presents strategies for using MUSTANG metrics to optimize your own data quality review. Many of the examples in this tutorial illustrate approaches used by the IRIS Data Services Quality Assurance (QA) staff.
