Teachable Moments and other Seismology Resources from IRIS
Our guests this week come from IRIS – the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology. Michael Hubenthal (senior education specialist) and John Taber (Director of Education and Public Outreach) join us to talk about the educational opportunities in seismology and earth science available from IRIS. Listen to the show to learn how you can use IRIS’s recent earthquake teachable moments, earthquake browser, and how you can search for seismology lessons and demonstrations.
