Charles Meertens, University Navstar Consortium/UCAR


The University Navstar Consortium (UNAVCO) Boulder facility has developed a Global Positioning System (GPS) Site Motion Vector Archive. Precise motions of points on the Earth, made with continuous or episodic GPS measurements, are being used to study tectonic processes including plate motions, plate boundary zone deformation, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. This archive of GPS velocities contains project information, maps, links, data, and metadata from both regional and global GPS analyses and showcases the work conducted by university and other research investigators. The archive also contains a global plate motion model velocity calculator and an interactive map tool. Velocity data are also accessible via a Distributed Ocean Data Sets (DODS) server.
