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.  The network involves both near-field and far-field stations to assess strain accumulation, fault locking, and the overall plate motions.
