A geodetic plate motion and Global Strain Rate Model

We present a new global model of plate motions and strain rates in plate boundary zones constrained by horizontal geodetic velocities. This Global Strain Rate Model (GSRM v.2.1) is a vast improvement over its predecessor both in terms of amount of data input as in an increase in spatial model resolution by factor of 2.5 in areas with dense data coverage. We… CONTINUE READING
