Plate tectonics and the evolution of climate part of SERC Web Resource Collection

Recent work has shown that climate, life, and tectonics interact in ways that are sometimes profound yet not obvious. Norman Sleep reviews two better understood terrestrial examples in this paper. ...

USGS Crustal Deformation Data part of SERC Web Resource Collection

The US Geological Survey maintains a variety of fault and volcano monitoring sites around the western United States. Instruments at these sites include strainmeters, creepmeters, tiltmeters, ...

Surface Creep on California Faults part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site provides data from a number of creepmeters in California. A creepmeter is an instrument that monitors the slow surface displacement of an active fault. Its function is not to measure fault ...

Tunnel Tiltmeters part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This website provides an overview of how tiltmeters function to help scientists detect subtle deformation of the Earths crust such as occurs from plate tectonic movements and volcanic deformation. ...

Google Earth Plate Tectonics File (.kmz) part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This Google Earth .kmz file contains a number of data sets that can be used to help students learn about plate tectonics. These include: earthquake epicenters, plate boundaries, plate motion vectors, ...

All About GPS - Trimble Tutorial part of SERC Web Resource Collection

GPS is a complex technology but understanding it can be quite easy if you take it one step at a time. This tutorial is designed to give you a good basic understanding of the principles behind GPS ...

CLICK: USGS Center for LIDAR Information Coordination and Knowledge part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This is the the USGS clearing house for LiDAR data and information. The goal of Center for LIDAR Information Coordination and Knowledge (CLICK) is to facilitate data access, user coordination and ...

How does GPS work? part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This document provides a quick explanation of how GPS works, including: (1) errors that need to be considered; (2) how GPS is applied to studying plate tectonics and fault movement; and (3) different ...

GPS data for educators part of SERC Web Resource Collection

Looking for interesting data to use in your course? UNAVCO has worked with educators and scientists to identify GPS stations that illustrate various Earth science processes. The data are the same ...

Elevation correction and the geoid tutorial part of SERC Web Resource Collection

The Earth is not a perfect sphere, but is instead more like a slightly squashed sphere called an ellipsoid. Because of this, GPS receivers must use a correction model (called a geoid) to calculate ...
