Please join us for an hour-long virtual breakout session to learn about and discuss a variety of marine geohazards, related science objectives, and instrumentation/methods needed for rapidly responding to these hazards with ocean bottom seismographs.

When: Tuesday, February 25th @ 2 pm ET
Host: Nathan Miller, U.S. Geological Survey, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Invited speakers:
Jackie Caplan-Auerbach, Western Washington University
Gabrielle Tepp, USGS
Rufus Catchings, USGS
Jochen Braunmiller, University of South Florida

Beginning last 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 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 available at

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