Description URL Builder

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
