IRIS Community Deploys Instruments in Chile

The IRIS Community, in partnership with colleagues from the University of Chile, is now in Chile installing instruments throughout the rupture zone to record the aftershocks from the magnitude 8.8 event on February 27. The dataset will be freely and openly available for use by a wide range of researchers from around the world as soon as they are collected and archived. Read the latest information about this effort and follow the progress by visiting the IRIS Community Instrument Deployment in Chile web site.
