IRIS: Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology

The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) is a "consortium of over 120 US universities dedicated to the operation of science facilities for the acquisition, management, and distribution of seismological data." Researchers and science instructors will find a number of resources that may be of interest on this website. These resources include a variety of datasets, available in the research section. Many of these datasets are available for browsing while others can be requested via a web form. Instructors will want to check out the education section, which includes lessons (complete with assembled PowerPoint presentations), fact sheets, and posters. Here, visitors will also find the Earthquake Browser, an interactive map of real-time earthquake data. IRIS also frequently hosts webinars that "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." Visitors can learn more about these webinars in the resources section.
