Syria GPS Network

A recently 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.
