The ph5ws-resp webservice gives access to instrument response metadata held in the IRIS-DMC’s PH5 archive. The response information is returned in the RESP format. The service can return responses for a channel, one or more channels under a location, or one or more channels under a station.
The service can be easily invoked by using the unix
$ curl -L -o 5A.1..DPZ.resp "http://service.iris.edu/ph5ws/resp/1/query?net=5A&sta=1&loc=++&cha=DPZ" % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 5053 0 5053 0 0 118k 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 159k
We recommend always using the
-L option to allow curl to follow HTTP redirections specified by our systems. The DMC uses HTTP redirection during maintenance to keep servicing requests.
