IRIS Receives NSF Award to Support Planning of Subduction Zone Observatory

The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded nearly $500,000 to IRIS to conduct activities focused on Subduction Zone in Four Dimensions (SZ4D). SZ4D is an initiative in the research community to study subduction zones – the places where tectonic plates converge and collide – through both space and time, with a focus on the fundamental processes underlying geologic hazards such as great earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, and volcanic eruptions. UNAVCO is a subawardee on this award to IRIS.

New user identity management system for data access

There are lots of exciting changes on the way as a part of UNAVCO’s coming merger with IRIS to form EarthScope Consortium, including the development of a new common cloud platform (CCP) for data services. This complex project is well underway and will be rolling out in stages, with the goal of a transparent and … Continued

2021 Short Course: GMT for Geodesy

This course will cover the use of GMT 6 in geodesy using UNIX shell scripting. Lectures and exercises will be given to teach the basic conventions of using GMT, such as plotting grids, images, and vector data (points, lines, polygons). Labs will include both processing and mapping of various data sets relevant to geodesy.
