This fall, IRIS has hosted a series of virtual breakout sessions to highlight and discuss a variety of different geohazards that our community has previously studied and responded to. 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.

IRIS also recently hosted an in-person mini-workshop on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 8th in Portland, OR adjacent to the SAGE/GAGE workshop. Talks presented at the mini-workshop, as well as recordings of past virtual breakouts, are currently being posted to

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