data.edit.mentor.generate.nepherrors generates mentor edits for neph data based on error segmentation. These edits are the invalidation of all scattering and backscattering channels. Normally called by data.edit.mentor.generate.

Command Line Usage

data.edit.mentor.generate.nepherrors [--nephs=S11,S12] [station] start end


start and end

The time specifiers edits to be generated. Start is inclusive while end is exclusive, so all edits intersecting within the half open interval [start,end) will be returned. Any convertible time format is accepted.


The station identifier code. For example 'brw'. Case insensitive.


List of nephs to gernate for, default S11 and S12.


Output is a series of suggested edits (one per line) of form:


start and end

The start and end of this edit in epoch time. If the field is null (zero length), then that parameter does not apply, so a null start with a valid end indicates all data up until (but excluding) the end time. Likewise a null end but a defined start is all data including and after the start. Both being defined is the half-open interval of time [start,end). Both null defines all time.


Record type this edit is applied to, may be null to apply to all records. May not contain more than one record type (that is represented by multiple lines).

type and params
