A physics-based method estimates the duration of earthquakes’ coseismic phase and can help improve the precision of coseismic slip models and magnitude estimates.
Researchers have developed a new mathematical model to more accurately capture how irregularities in Earth’s atmosphere interrupt signals from Global Navigation Satellite Systems.
The transdimensional Bayesian approach handles GPS data limitations better than existing methods and may assist future seismic hazard assessment studies.
GPS measurements of the Indian and Eurasian plates reveal four locked segments most likely to produce large earthquakes.
A low-cost, two-antenna GPS setup could enable valuable snow measurements in remote locations, improving predictions of runoff and avalanche risk.
More GPS stations, faster data delivery, and better data processing provide an abundance of information for all kinds of Earth scientists.
A new technique based on GPS signals could provide better wind speed measurements during hurricanes and cyclones.
A decade of continuous GPS measurements in South America indicates that enhanced strain accumulation following a great earthquake can initiate failure along adjacent fault segments.
