IRIS is a consortium of universities dedicated to the operation of science facilities for the acquisition, management, and distribution of seismological data.

Data Visualization of Wells, NV Magnitude 6 Earthquake; This set of animations was inspired by a visualization of ground motion resulting from the February 21, 2008 M 6.0 earthquake that occurred near Wells, NV sending a ripple of ground motion to hundreds of seismic stations. To understand how seismic waves migrate away from an earthquake, we combined the animation at lower right with the image of a faucet to illustrate the classic Earth science functional analogy; “Seismic waves radiate…

Exploring Rates of Earthquake Occurrence; Objectives:  Students will be able to:  Describe general patterns of global earthquake occurance (e.g. ring of fire) Use the IRIS Earthquake Browser to generate a graph showing the frequencey of various sized earthqaukes for a region or the entire world Explain how regional tectonics affect the size and frequency of earthquakes Assess the strengths and weaknesses of an argument for using historic earthquake occurrence to “predict” future occurrences…

The Rapid Earthquake Viewer (REV) provides access to data seismograms from seismograph stations around the world in three "mouse clicks". In REV you can seismic data for an event as three-component data from a single station or a record section (many seismograms each from a single station progressively further away).

Students learn how engineers design and construct buildings to withstand earthquake damage by building their own model structures using toothpicks and marshmallows. They experiment to see how earthquake-proof their buildings are by testing them in an earthquake simulated in a pan of Jell-O®.
