Register for the 2018 IRIS Workshop!

Since its inception in 1984, IRIS has built excellent foundational facilities for seismologists to study the Earth’s interior, earthquakes and other natural hazards. This workshop will highlight exciting scientific advances using current facilities, and explore future frontier facilities, activities and techniques. In part, the future of IRIS includes the expansion of the facilities to support interdisciplinary research activities among the solid Earth, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere and other surface processes, and to create a more diverse geoscience community.
