Description URL Builder

This form creates a URL that searches SCEDC metadata based on the criteria entered in the fields below. The URL will change as you type in the fields. The station web service returns station metadata in FDSN StationXML format (schema here) or as delimited text. Results are available at four different levels of granularity: network, station, channel and response. Metadata may be selected based on channel descriptiors, time ranges, geographic regions and more.

NOTE: The SCEDC will start serving station XML v1.1 starting April 28, 2020
