These breakout sessions are part of a larger IRIS initiative ( to procure a new set of instrumentation to enable a new rapid response capability based out of the PASSCAL Instrument Center. We are actively seeking input on the needs of the science community as we consider how to most effectively spend instrument procurement funds.

IRIS will also be hosting an in-person mini workshop on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 8th in Portland, OR adjacent to the SAGE/GAGE workshop. If you would like to attend the geohazards mini workshop, limited travel support is available. To learn more, and to register, please visit:

We look forward to your participation and input at the upcoming virtual breakout sessions.
