Wide plate margin deformation, southern Central America and northwestern South America, CASA GPS observations
Abstract Global positioning system data from southern Central America and northwestern South America were collected during 1991, 1994, 1996, and 1998 in Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Colombia, andExpand

GPS measurements of present-day convergence across the Nepal Himalaya
The high elevations of the Himalaya and Tibet result from the continuing collision between India and Asia, which started more than 60 million years ago1–4. From geological and seismic studies of theExpand

Present-Day Crustal Deformation in China Constrained by Global Positioning System Measurements
Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements in China indicate that crustal shortening accommodates most of India's penetration into Eurasia. Deformation within the Tibetan Plateau and its margins,Expand

Kinematics of the India-Eurasia collision zone from GPS measurements
We use geodetic techniques to study the India-Eurasia collision zone. Six years of GPS data constrain maximum surface contraction rates across the Nepal Himalaya to 18 ± 2 mm/yr at 12°N ±13° (1σ).Expand

A deforming block model for the present‐day tectonics of Tibet
[1] We use GPS data from 45 sites across the Tibetan Plateau surveyed between 1991 and 2001 to study the distribution of strain in that part of the India-Eurasia collision zone. The plateau is cut byExpand

Geodetic evidence for a low slip rate in the Altyn Tagh fault system
The collision between India and Asia has been simulated with a variety of computational models that describe or predict the motions of the main faults of east Asia. Geological slip-rate estimates ofExpand

Rapid viscoelastic uplift in southeast Alaska caused by post-Little Ice Age glacial retreat
Our observations show that extreme uplift in southeast Alaska began about 1770 AD, with relative sea level (RSL) change to 5.7 m and current uplift rates to 32 mm/yr. This region experiencedExpand

Active Deformation Processes in Alaska, Based on 15 Years of GPS Measurements
We present a comprehensive average velocity field for Alaska, based on repeated GPS surveys covering the period 1992―2007, and review the major results of previously published papers that usedExpand

Kinematics of the Pacific-North America plate boundary zone
We measured motions of 54 sites in an east-west transect across northern California at 38°–40° north by Global Positioning System (GPS) observations over a 4 year. We estimate the total slip rate onExpand

Three-dimensional elastic dislocation modeling of the postseismic response to the 1964 Alaska earthquake
[1] GPS velocity observations from the Kenai Peninsula and Kodiak Island, Alaska, display a pattern of spatial variability suggesting the presence of multiple active processes on the underlyingExpand
