GPS data and Death Valley Fault Zone

Faculty from Nevada Geodetic Laboratory (NGL) recently published an article on Death Valley (J. Geophys. Res., 117, B06404,doi:10.1029/2011JB008552). Their research uses GPS data from the NGL MAGNET network to infer an interpretation of geologic e…

Faculty from Nevada Geodetic Laboratory (NGL) recently published an article on Death Valley (J. Geophys. Res., 117, B06404,doi:10.1029/2011JB008552). Their research uses GPS data from the NGL MAGNET network to infer an interpretation of geologic evolution of Death Valley over the last 6 million years.
