Free SurfSeis 6++ Update

A free update is available to anyone who currently has a copy of SurfSeis 6. The free SurfSeis 6++ update includes numerous minor improvements and features requested by SurfSeis 6 users, including:

  • Faster movement between dispersion-curve (aka overtone) images when picking multimode dispersion curves (accessible by choosing "Processing Steps," "Pick Dispersion-curves From Images" from the main menu).
  • Importing 1- to 5-column text data into KGS format, which can be useful when using other research or application tools.

The updated software (which we denote with ++ following your version number, such as v6.7++) will be provided via Dropbox link. We strongly recommend you keep a copy of the most recent install files you last received from us—either on CD or via Dropbox link—until you are able to install and run this update.

The free update includes new drivers for the dongle, so we strongly recommend you uninstall the older version and then install the newer version to make sure these drivers are replaced/updated.

If you have a copy of SurfSeis 6, how do you get your free update?

Contact Mary Brohammer (mbro@kgs.ku.edu) and request the update. You will need to provide 1) your serial number (i.e., 6A2300)—which you will find on the tag attached to your dongle and 2) the name of the company or institution to which your copy of SurfSeis is registered.

Is the update available to you if you have an older copy of SurfSeis (v5, v4, etc.)?

There is cost associated with this update if you don't already have a copy of SurfSeis 6. By upgrading your existing license to SurfSeis 6 you will automatically receive the updated SurfSeis 6++ software. Because of the optional modules available, each customer's upgrade cost will be unique to their situation, so please contact Mary to find out what that will be for your company. You will need to provide 1) your serial number (i.e., 6A2300)—which you will find on your dongle tag and 2) the name of the company or institution to which this copy of SurfSeis is registered.
