Seismic waveforms of global earthquakes of Mw≥7.0 recorded by stations in Himalayan area

Seismic waveforms of global earthquakes of Mw≥7.0 recorded by stations in Himalayan area

The global seismic waveform data of magnitude 7 or above recorded by 10 seismic stations in the Himalaya region (from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020), including the name and location of stations, and the clear seismic waveform of each event filtered by the seismic event directory (the seismic directory is from USGS) to 10 stations. The waveform data is clipped to 100s before and 300s after the arrival of P wave, and the format is sac format. The header contains station information, event information, azimuth and other information. It is named in the form of "network. Station name. Channel. Component. D. year. Julian day - time. 000000. Event".

File naming and required software

The waveform data is stored in sac format. The name of the file is "XX. Ml02.01.001. D.2020.199-0250.000000. Event", where ml02 represents the station name, 2020 represents the year, and 199-0250 represents Julian date time (2:50 on the 199th day of the year).
The header file contains some information about stations and events
