“Using GPS to Measure Plate Motion and the Deformation of the American Southwest”

Abstract: The precise measurement of ground motion using GPS technology has revolutionized the Earth sciences. The motion of GPS stations provided the first direct evidence that plates move relative to one another, confirming the theory of plate tectonics. The explosion of GPS stations worldwide has since provided unprecedented insight into the detailed deformation of plate boundaries, earthquake cycle mechanisms, and geodynamic processes. This talk will provide an overview of some of the most exciting discoveries, with particular focus on the slow deformation in the American Southwest.
