Analysis of Global Positioning System (GPS) data demonstrates that ongoing three-dimensional crustal deformation in Fennoscandia is dominated by glacial isostatic adjustment. Our comparison of these GPS observations with numerical predictions yields an Earth model that satisfies independent geologic constraints and bounds both the average viscosity in the(More)
[1] Data collected under the auspices of the BIFROST GPS project yield a geographically dense suite of estimates of present-day, three-dimensional (3-D) crustal deformation rates in Fennoscandia [Johansson et al., 2002]. A preliminary forward analysis of these estimates [Milne et al., 2001] has indicated that models of ongoing glacial isostatic adjustment(More)
We present sea level observations derived from the analysis of Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) data recorded at five coastal GPS sites. These sites are located in different regions around the world, both in the northern and the southern hemisphere, in different multipath environments, from rural coastal areas to busy harbors, and experience different tidal(More)
We present results of 2477 days of continuous GPS observations and daily geodetic solutions in the BIFROST networks. We analyse the position solutions in terms of regional motions induced by a variety of geophysical phenomena operating over a range of time scales. The primary purpose is to resolve constant rates of deformation produced by the on-going(More)
Seismic strong motion is the surface dispacements that occurs close to earthquake epicenters. The detection of the near-field deformation is important for the determination of the seismic source parameters and to provide information for engineers in order to improve earthquake resistance for buildings and other structures. Usually strong-motion observations(More)
