The Briefing Panel has identified five research areas in which significant dividends can be expected as a result of incremental federal investment in FY1985.

  • These five research areas are:

    • Seismic Investigations of the Continental Crust

    • Continental Scientific Drilling

    • Physics and Chemistry of Geological Materials

    • Global Digital Seismic Array

    • Satellite Geodesy

  • Purposes:

    • to promote and conduct geophysical investigation of the Earth’s interior using seismic and other geophysical methods;

    • to promote the exchange of information and knowledge and to create, foster, and encourage cooperative efforts between the members of the Corporation and other organizations, research workers, students and other institutions involved in the area of the study of Earth sciences;

    • to solicit, raise and receive funds for the advancement and furtherance of the foregoing purposes; and

    • to do any other acts that may further the general purposes of the Corporation as set forth herein.

“The Rainbow Proposal”Imaging the Earth’s Interior:


Rainbow proposal outline

This proposal is for support of the ten-year IRIS program for the implementation of four major national facilities for seismology:

A Global Digital Seismic Arrayfeaturing real-time satellite telemetry from one hundred modern seismographic observatories

A Mobile Array comprised of one thousand portable digital seismographs to be used for studies of the continental lithosphere

Central Data Management and Distribution Facilities to provide rapid and convenient access to the data sets for the entire research community

A Major Computational Facilitycapable of supporting the analyses of these new data

    NSF- IRIS Cooperative Agreement No. EAR-0004370Exploring the Earth at High ResolutionEFFECTIVE DATE:July 1 , 2001EXPIRATION DATE:June 30, 2006

    It is the intent of the Foundation to provide up to $69,377,900 to support the IRIS Consortium over the next 5 years.

    Contingent on the availability of funds, up to $68,000,000 of the total amount will be awarded by the NSF Earth Sciences Division Instrumentation and Facilities Program (EAR/IF) to support IRIS core programs as set forth in this Agreement.

    Core support for FY 2001 Year 1 funds is $12,600,000.

    Core support for the out-years is as follows:

    FY 2002 - $13,100,000

    FY 2003 - $13,600,000

    FY 2004 - $14,100,000

    FY 2005 - $14,600,000

    In addition, the $68,000,000 may be supplemented, through amendments to this Cooperative Agreement, up to a five-year maximum total of $20,000,000 for an approved NSB total of up to $88,000,000. The supplements will be from other NSF Programs, other Federal agency or other funds, when available and as appropriate, in support of projects or other scientific activities deemed compatible with the scientific and educational mission of IRIS.

    Special Requirements:

    GSN Review

    IRIS will carry out and report to NSF by July 1, 2003, an in-depth study of the operation, personnel and instrument costs, and support of the Global Seismographic Network, in collaboration with NSF, USGS, representatives of the Federation of Digital Seismic Networks (FDSN), and GSN network operators.

    Management Review

    NSF will conduct, in coordination with the Awardee and its appropriate governance committees, a review of IRIS management to be completed by July 1, 2004. A report of this review will be submitted to the National Science Board (NSB) during the second half of 2004, and will provide more information for the basis of the decision to either allow the submission of a renewal proposal or to recompete the operation of this facility.
