Easing Access to IRIS data for other disciplines. The IRIS DMC manages data from approximately 24 different kinds of sensors in addition to seismometers. Traditionally the data have been esoteric and generally understood by seismologists only. This raised a significant impediment for use of IRIS managed data by scientists in other disciplines. The IRIS DMS has embarked on the development of web services that are capable of providing data, with a variety of user controllable preprocessing applied, and with output in very easy to understand ASCII formats. As shown in this figure barometric pressure data as recorded by the EarthScope funded Transportable Array can be provided to an atmospheric scientist in units of pascals, low pass filtered or with other signal processing algorithms applied.</p>
