Welcome to the IRIS Image Gallery - a diverse collection of photographs and visuals that encompass the range and breadth of seismology and the seismological community.
Please browse through our albums. These low and medium-resolution images can be freely used for personal and educational/academic purposes, but we request you recognize the image contributor by including in your product or presentation the credit displayed with each image.
The cumulative volume of seismic data archived at the IRIS Data Management Center (left) for major seismic networks totals 81.3 terabytes as of August 2008. The annual number of terabytes shipped from the IRIS DMC (right) for the same seismic network types is twice as much data as new data arriving at the DMC, and will total more than 35 terabytes to end users in 2008.
