Dear IRIS Colleagues, Some of you have been asking how the ongoing partial government shutdown is affecting IRIS and the facilities and services we provide to the IRIS community. IRIS, of course, is funded primarily by the NSF and NSF is one of the Federal agencies facing a lapse in funding during the shutdown.

Your input could very well have a significant impact on the recommendations of the CORES committee. Thanks, Bob Dear IRIS Colleagues, The National Research Council of the National Academies is conducting a “decadal” study on Catalyzing Opportunities for Research … [more]
In 2019 and 2020, IRIS will establish a new pool of portable magnetotelluric (MT) systems at the PASSCAL Instrument Center in Socorro, New Mexico. The facility aims to broaden the participation of principal investigators in MT research by increasing opportunities for experiments by non-specialists and encouraging combined seismic-MT deployments, with user training and data handling support available through the PIC at no extra cost. The vision for this facility is described in a previous… [more]

Dear IRIS Colleagues, The National Research Council of the National Academies is conducting a “decadal” study on Catalyzing Opportunities for Research in the Earth Sciences (CORES) for NSF’s Division of Earth Sciences. The purpose of the CORES study is to: (1) identify a concise set of high-priority scientific questions for the next decade, (2) assess infrastructure needed to address these questions, and (3) determine opportunities for greater collaboration with other NSF divisions and direct… [more]
