The wide variety of computer platforms, file formats, and methods to access seismological data often requires considerable effort in preprocessing such data. Although preprocessing work-flows are mostly very similar, few software standards exist to accomplish this task. The objective of ObsPy is to provide a Python toolbox that simplifies the usage of Python programming for seismologists. It is conceptually similar to SEATREE (Milner and Thorsten 2009) or the exploration seismic software project MADAGASCAR ( In ObsPy the following essential seismological processing routines are implemented and ready to use: reading and writing dat...
