UNAVCO and IRIS
Joining Forces for Advancing Geophysics


Beginning in 2019, UNAVCO and IRIS began discussions focused on how both organizations can collectively work together to further advance geophysics support for the community. As our science becomes more convergent, there is benefit to examining how we can support research and education as a single organization. Following initial discussions, the UNAVCO and IRIS Boards reached consensus that the joining of UNAVCO and IRIS is the best option for the research community to continue to conduct and advance cutting-edge geophysics.

The task of joining IRIS and UNAVCO operations is a complicated and fluid process. We will post material on this page throughout the process as it is available, which means that information may change often in both big and small ways. Additional information is shared with the community via respective UNAVCO and IRIS email listservs.

Please email community@unavco.org or community@iris.edu with questions.
