Continuous GPS Arrays

The Tectonics Observatory is deploying geodetic networks consisting of continuously recording GPS stations to monitor crustal deformation. These networks include sites that are both telemetered on a daily basis through land and satellite links, and manually downloaded several times per year (description).

Maps and live updates:
