IRIS Webinars




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Previous webinars have been archived below. Please click on the picture to view the webinar at the IRISEnO YouTube channel. For additional information about the webinars, please consult the Frequently Asked Questions.

Testimonials:


“I enjoyed the webinar very much. A lot of interesting new data. I hope there will be more presentations in the future.”


“Being able to see images up close on my computer and hearing the researcher clearly without distractions from a crowd helps me to take in the information better than I could at a conference.”


“As the only geophysicist at my institution, it was really nice to see a research seminar on deep Earth seismology!”


“Please do more of these as its an excellent way for those AGU members not residing in the US to keep up with the play.”


“I was glad to have signed up. The results presented were interesting, and I got useful answers to all three of the questions I asked.”


“Thank you. It was a clear and informative talk and an excellent medium to disseminate knowledge. Please keep me posted for other webinars.”


“Thank you IRIS, It was very interesting presentation and I really enjoyed it.”
