Description

The NCEDC RESP webservice gives access to instrument response information. 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 and wget commands.

curl $ curl -o BK.CMB.00.BHZ.resp "http://service.ncedc.org/ncedcws/resp/1/query?net=BK&sta=CMB&loc=00&cha=BHZ" This will send the request to the server and save the results in a file name BK.CMB.00.BHZ.resp
wget $ wget -O BK.CMB.00.BHZ.resp "http://service.ncedc.org/ncedcws/resp/1/query?net=BK&sta=CMB&loc=00&cha=BHZ" This will send the request to the server and save the results in a file name BK.CMB.00.BHZ.resp Make sure to surround the url with quotes or your unix shell will interpret the & characters as background control characters. With recent versions of wget you can use the content-disposition flag to have the file saved to an automatic name. $ wget --content-disposition "http://service.ncedc.org/ncedcws/resp/1/query?net=BK&sta=CMB&loc=00&cha=BHZ" $ ls ncedcws-resp_2013-06-27T23:06:41.txt ncedcws-resp_2013-06-27T23:06:41.txt
