Question

Website login help

Answer

You can log in at https://ds.iris.edu/account/login/

Logins are rarely required

There are (currently) only a few things you would need to log in for:

  • Managing your mailing list subscriptions and posting messages from the web. (But you can also use email for this, see below.)
  • Managing IP-based preferences for data services.

Message Center has both web and email interfaces

Mailing lists can be accessed on the web: https://ds.iris.edu/message-center/topic/agu-meetings
Or by email:
agu-meetings@lists.ds.iris.edu to post to the list
agu-meetings-subscribe@lists.ds.iris.edu to subscribe
agu-meetings-unsubscribe@lists.ds.iris.edu to unsubscribe

Log in with your email address

Email is a primary user identifier for both mailing lists and data services, so the website login is also based on email address.

When you use a 3rd party login, all it gives us is your email address (and name), it’s really just vouching that you are the person at this email address.

Hidden tip: there’s actually a secret password-free login method: use the password reset form. This doesn’t technically reset your password, its main purpose is to log you in, and as a convenience it takes you to a (completely optional) password reset form. This is actually the most fundamental login method, all the others are built on top of this.
