sum traces

command: SUM <trc-list>[ <lo-bound> <hi-bound>] [<count>]

Sums all traces specified in <trc-list> with respect to lo- and hi-bound and current time-window (see STW). The result is displayed in a new created trace on top of the display. The sum trace is normalized by the number of input traces unless the "/nonorm" qualifier is specified.


  • <trc-list> parameter type: trace list
    List of traces to be summed.
  • <lo-bound>, <hi-bound> parameter type: real
    The summation trace is restricted to this time window. If no time window is entered the current display time window is used.
  • <count> parameter type: symbol address
    Variable to store number of summed traces (useful e.g. when using "ALL").


  • /nonorm
    If passed, the summation trace is the plain sum of the input traces and is not normalised by the number of input traces.
  • /stddev
  • /phases


sum all
creates sum of all traces and appends result trace to the top of the display
sum 1,3,5
creates sum of listed traces
sum _azimuth(0:180)
sums all traces with an azimuth value between 0 and 180 degrees
