Presenter: Dr. Alex Hutko, Product Specialist, IRIS Data Management Center

IRIS data products are meant to facilitate research by providing
starting points as well as standardized baselines. Many of our products
are automatically generated and published in near-real time. Our product
efforts involve a combination of developing products in-house, in
collaboration with researchers, and hosting products developed by
researchers. To date we have funded 8 data product developments with
mini-grants and hope to continue this in the future. This presentation
highlights a few notable products, browsed using the Searchable Product
Depository (SPUD,, that serve primarily as
research resources:

-Event-based products that are generated in near real-time and include
GCMTs, 1D & 3D SEM synthetic seismograms, visualization of ground motion
across USArray, earthquake energy and rupture duration, back-projection
rupture imaging and plots of station maps and record sections.

-The TA Infrasound Reference Event Database (TAIRED) and TA Infrasound
Detections (TAID) are designed to provide insight and tools for
researchers to begin working with this large, and somewhat unique, new
data set.

-Our Earth Model Collaboration (EMC) is a repository from which users
can download contributed tomography models or generate images through a
web interface.

-A new product, the Noise Toolbox tracks the polarization of noise and
will serve as the basis for a microseism index database.

-Easy access on-demand customizable SEM synthetic seismograms.
