  • IRIS Seismographs in Schools - Tribute
    we will share his ideas and inspiration with many others so his goodness and wisdom can multiply into the future Robert Butler Announcing the John C Lahr Educational Seismology Fund The Lahr family and Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology IRIS are pleased to announce the establishment of a fund to support Seismographs in Schools SIS within the IRIS Education and Outreach program In the last several years of his life John Lahr became very involved in supporting this program It was the perfect opportunity for him to use his knowledge and skills in teaching workshops traveling to schools throughout the country supporting teachers and helping to develop equipment and software John felt strongly that the earth sciences are being seriously neglected in the U S educational system and he was pleased to be a part of a program that is working to correct the problem The John C Lahr Educational Seismology Fund will provide funding toward seismographs and teacher training through the SIS program Schools and teachers that receive equipment and training through the fund will be expected to show how they will actively incorporate the seismograph into the classroom Currently the cost of a seismograph is about 600 and the cost of teacher training is about 950 At present these services are provided by IRIS through National Science Foundation funding at no cost to schools or teachers though it is likely this will change in the future The fund could then be available to provide scholarships By providing additional resources for the SIS program the hope is that the fund will enable the program to expand to serve more schools throughout the country Seismographs that are paid for by the fund will have John s name on them in tribute to him John truly loved working with the Seismographs

  • IRIS - Tutorial Data Visualizations
    data it recorded Its has been created because its simplistic nature allows you the viewer time to focus on the core concepts of this visualization series The circle on the map shows the seismic station location The seismogram at the bottom was recorded at that station The red line on the seismogram shows the progression of time The station circle changes color depending on whether the motion as shown by the amplitude of the seismogram is going up or down In this visualization blue is downwards motion red is upwards More intense colors indicate larger motions Download Quicktime File Low Res 7MB Hi Res 17MB Tutorial 2 The Family of Stations This visualization shows the same station and seismogram as in the visualization above but now adds in all the other seismic stations aka siblings that make up the array Now the patterns of propagating seismic waves are revealed What previously looked like random red blue blinking dot on the map is now part of a coherent large scale pattern Facts about the Solomon Islands Earthquake used in Tutorials 1 2 The Solomon Islands earthquake occurred on April 1 2007 at 20 39 58 Universal Time with a magnitude of 8 1 The latitude and longitude of the earthquake were 8 5 degrees South and 157 0 degrees East and the earthquake was 24 km deep Download Quicktime File Low Res 10MB Hi Res 27MB Tutorial 3 3 D This animation has been created to further illustrate the meaning the circle color alternating back and forth from red to blue of each station The animation begins with a map view as before but then rotates the map so that you are seeing it from the side as if you are sitting out over the Pacific Ocean and seeing California from the edge In the edge view one can see each station now represented as a spheres moving up and down and changing colors as they do so Watch one station in the cross section closely What happens to its color as it reaches the peak of its motion And at its lowest position Once the view rotates back into map or top view you are still seeing the same spheres as before and they are still changing color However now the stations are again seen from directly overhead As a result they simply look like circles with their vertical motion again being show as colors note this animation used a different color convention blue up red down Triple Window Tutorial 4 Distance and Azimuth Profiles These visualizations consist of three panels each conveying a different views of the same information While the volume of visual information presented can be initially overwhelming once understood this format allows you to simultaneously consume different perspectives Two examples of this type of Panel 1 The top panel provides a map view of the position of the array and the ground motion at each station The top panel also includes two reference lines The red
