added component of this project involves the application of Global Positioning
System (GPS) measurements for tectonic geodesy. Working with colleagues
from MIT and from Syria, we have installed a network of 37 GPS monuments
in Syria. We hope to observe this network annually beginning in Spring
2002 (delayed from Fall 2001). The network involves both near-field
and far-field stations to assess strain accumulation, fault locking, and
the overall plate motions.
