1983 Committee on Science Engineering and Public PolicyThe 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 CrustContinental Scientific DrillingPhysics and Chemistry of Geological MaterialsGlobal Digital Seismic ArraySatellite Geodesy
IRIS Articles of Incorporation May 8, 1984
Purposes:to promote and conduct geophysical investigation of the Earths 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; andto do any other acts that may further the general purposes of the Corporation as set forth herein.

The Rainbow ProposalImaging the Earths Interior:Detailed Studies of the Earth and of the Seismic Source with New Global and Transportable Arrays
A Proposal to the National Science FoundationfromIRIS: The Incorporated ResearchInstitutions for Seismology
Duration: 10 yearsRequested Starting Date: January 1, 1985Amount Requested: $107 M for initial 5 yearsEstimated: $281 M 10-year total
Thomas V. McEvillyShelton A. AlexanderChairman, Board of Directors Vice Chairman, Board of Directorsand Acting President
Rainbow Proposal - OutlineThis proposal is for support of the ten-year IRIS program for the implementation of four major national facilities for seismology:A Global Digital Seismic Array featuring real-time satellite telemetry from one hundred modern seismographic observatoriesA Mobile Array comprised of one thousand portable digital seismographs to be used for studies of the continental lithosphereCentral Data Management and Distribution Facilities to provide rapid and convenient access to the data sets for the entire research communityA Major Computational Facility capable of supporting the analyses of these new data
A Global Digital Seismic Array
featuring real-time satellite telemetry from one hundred modern seismographic observatories
1984 ~45 digital stationsGDSN, RTSN, IDA and GEOSCOPE
2002~125 GSN stations ~200 station total with FDSN partners
1960s to 1980s - WWSSN Equipment2002 - the GSN Family Portrait
Central Data Management and Distribution Facilities
to provide rapid and convenient access to the data sets for the entire research community
1984Data input - 150- 350 Gbyte /year Large data sets ( >200 Gbytes)treated as statistical outliers
2002 20 terabytes in 12.5 millions files 6 terabytes/year

NSF- IRIS Cooperative Agreement No. EAR-0004370Exploring the Earth at High Resolution EFFECTIVE DATE:July 1 , 2001 EXPIRATION DATE:June 30, 2006It 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 - $13,100,000FY 2003 - $13,600,000FY 2004 - $14,100,000FY 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.
NSF- IRIS Cooperative Agreement No. EAR-0004370Exploring the Earth at High Resolution EFFECTIVE DATE:July 1 , 2001 EXPIRATION DATE:June 30, 2006Special Requirements:
GSN ReviewIRIS 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.
