NAMEmbsegypsd - Calculates the power spectral densisty function (PSD) of each trace in a segy file, outputting the PSD estimates as a GMT grid file with trace number along the x axis and frequency along the y axis.
SYNOPSISmbsegypsd -Ifile -Oroot [-Ashotscale -Ddecimatex -R -Smode[/start/end[/schan/echan]] -Tsweep[/delay] -Wmode/start/end -H -V]";
DESCRIPTIONmbsegypsd calculates the power spectral densisty function (PSD) of each trace in a segy file, outputting the PSD estimates as a grid with trace number along the x axis and frequency along the y axis. The output files are GMT netCDF format grid files.
The x-dimension of the grid is determined by the number of traces specified by the -S option and any decimation specified with option -D. If the -S option is not specified, then all of the traces in the segy file will be processed. If the time sweep and delay (if any) are not specified using the -T option, then the sweep and delay will be set so that all trace samples are incorporated into the grid.
The y-dimension of the grid is determined by the sample interval in the time series data. The frequency range runs from zero Hz to a maximum frequency given in Hz by 1/(2*sampleinterval), where the sampleinterval is in seconds. So, for instance, hydrophone data sampled at 26 kHz (26000 samples/second) will have a sample interval of (1/26000 = 0.00003846 seconds). In this case, the PSD will be calculated for frequencies ranging from 0 Hz to 13000 Hz (13 kHz).
For each trace, the PSD will be calculated by ensemble averaging, which means that the trace will be broken up into a number of segments of length nfft (specified with the -N option, default = 1024), a fast-Fourier-transform (FFT) will be calculated for each segment, and the PSD estimate will be the average of the FFT magnitudes over all segments. Before the FFT is calculated, each segment is multiplied by a Hanning (cosine) taper; the PSD estimates are normalized to account for the loss of signal due to the taper application.
The output grid can be either in linear units (Intensity/Hz) or in log-scaled dB/Hz calculated as 20 * log10 (raw-PSD-value). The default is the former, and the -L option causes output in the dB/Hz form.
A shellscript invoking GMT programs to plot the PSD grid is automatically generated.

.br The output PSD grid file is named testpsd.grd. A shellscript named testpsd.grd.cmd is also created that, when executed, will generate a plot of the sonogram. MBsegypsd also outputs an ascii file containing the average PSD for the entire segy file in the form of frequency PSD pairs. In this case, the average PSD file is named testpsd_psd.txt, and has contents like:
A shellscript named testpsd_psd.txt.cmd is created that will, when executed, generate a plot of the average PSD.
