IRIS Statement on Racism in Geoscience
We at IRIS join our colleagues from across the country and around the globe in unequivocally denouncing racism. BLACK LIVES MATTER. We also know that racism is persistent in STEM and that there are systemic inequalities in academia and particularly in the geosciences.
Release of the new IRIS mars-event Service for Accessing the Seismic Event Catalog from the InSight Mission to Mars
