Geodetic Strain Rate Model

The project on the global geodetic strain rate model is carried out by a group of international experts who are in turn backed up by their teams. The project has as its main goals to:

1. Create a uniform Global GPS velocity database, 2. Update, expand and improve the Global Strain Rate Model (of 2004), 3. Disseminate and visualize the results. To achieve these goals we are analyzing data of 4000+ continuous GPS stations worldwide and determining secular horizontal velocities; adding published velocities from mainly campaign-style observations (100+ studies); using a new GPS velocity database to update the Global Strain Rate Model (GSRM) of 2004, and are using focal mechanisms, and active fault traces for constraints.

Through these posts we share our work in the context of GEM. Sometimes these are status updates, sometimes these are presentations we gave and sometimes these are reports or other documents, but it always work-in-progress.
We are very much interested in receiving your feedback and ideas, so please do comment on our posts and/or rate the comments of others.

We are sorry.. we are working behind the scenes, but have no posts to share with the community yet. Feel free to contact the group manager for further information about our activities though!
