IRIS offers free and open access to a comprehensive data store of raw geophysical time-series data collected from a large variety of sensors, courtesy of a vast array of US and International scientific networks, including seismometers (permanent and temporary), tilt and strain meters, infrasound, temperature, atmospheric pressure and gravimeters, to support basic research aimed at imaging the Earth's interior. Data are stored at the IRIS Data Management Center in Seattle, Washington and duplicated at an Auxiliary Data Center in California. We currently manage a large archive from over 49,000 seismic stations and ship nearly a petabyte of data yearly. More information on data distribution is available on our website. The latest developments in Data and Software are published in the IRIS Data Management Center's online newsletter. IRIS DMC has been certified as a trustworthy data repository by the CoreTrustSeal Standards and Certification Board.
