Service to IRIS and Seismological Community



The changing landscape of federal funding, the completion of EarthScope, and recompetition of seismological facilities in support of research and education in 2018, present opportunities and challenges for IRIS. While sustaining our core capabilities and strengths is essential, we need to position the consortium for the future. Leveraging NSF resources through collaborations and a diversified funding portfolio, incorporating new technologies, engaging with international partners, establishing new community initiatives to advance our science, and active engagement of consortium members are vital to securing the future of IRIS.
