fetching data using mass_downloader / missing station


I'm using the mass_downloader to get some data. For some reason all the stations are read (8 stations) but only 7 are downloaded.

  obspy.clients.fdsn.mass_downloader - INFO: Client 'IRIS' - Found 8 stations (24 channels).
[2017-03-10 12:53:14,603] - obspy.clients.fdsn.mass_downloader - INFO: Client 'IRIS' - Will attempt to download data from 7 stations.

All the stations names start with AX and I'm using "AX*" as station code.
The missing station name is AXEC2, when I explicitely specify "AXEC2" as station name, then it works.

Any idea what's wrong here?



Hi Christian,

the Restrictions object has a couple more ways to limit the downloaded data. In your particular case I suspect its the minimum_interstation_distance_in_m parameter that results in only 7 stations being downloaded. By default it will only download one of two stations if both are closer than 1 km to each other. Settings this to zero should download all data.

If that does not solve the issue, please send me the used code and I’ll have a look.



Hi Lion, indeed that was the issue, thanks a lot!

Cheers, Ch.
