Data from seismic stations managed by IRIS, IRIS Member Institutions and other partners are being used by researchers to learn more about the Cascadia Subduction Zone and the potential seismic and tsunamic risk to the Pacific Northwest.
The IRIS Board of Directors along with IRIS Senior Management, Program/Project Managers, and Standing Committee Chairs have developed a Strategic Plan that summarizes the vision, mission, and goals which will guide the organization to 2020 and into the future.
The blockbuster disaster movie, San Andreas, centers around the rescue of the main character's daughter following a huge rupture of California's best known fault. Find out what seismologists are saying.
The IRIS Data Management Center has created a Special Event web page that provides direct links to and images of data and materials available from IRIS programs and preliminary research results from the seismology community.
These short (1-2 pages) documents will describe an important scientific question or problem the community member expects to be working on during the next decade and the seismic or geodetic facility capabilities that would enable further progress in addressing this scientific issue or support related to broader impact needs.
A workshop was held in mid-January to catalyze relationships between the two communities to address the foundational research needed on how people learn geoscience content and develop into expert geoscientists.
IRIS, UNAVCO, and the EarthScope National Office (ENO) are working together to gather community input for the NSF on the capabilities of the seismic and geodetic facilities needed to support fundamental research in the geosciences in the 2020s and beyond.
