IRIS hosts regular web-based seminars featuring contributions from our staff, members of the seismological community, and other professionals across the geosciences. Many webinars highlight recent scientific results stemming directly from the facilities administered by IRIS such as EarthScope's USArray or core IRIS programs like PASSCAL and the GSN. Others are directed towards Early Career Investigators and focus on professional or technical development.

Previous webinars have been archived below. For additional information about the webinars, please consult the Frequently Asked Questions.

All IRIS Webinars are also available directly from our YouTube channel.
