Using GPS to measure remote earthquakes

Ji et al., AGU

A comparison of data from ground measurement stations and seismic observation platforms along with GPS observations provide evidence that the 2003 San Simeon, CA earthquake ruptured in a fan-shaped pattern around its hypocenter. Findings suggest that GPS could be used to produce estimates of the slip history and ground motion of remote earthquakes where geodetic and geological sensors are not available.
