Plate Boundary Observatory Workshop
October 2-5, 1999
1. Data from all SCIGN stations are available on-line as soon as they can be physically moved from the site to the archive, i.e. within a few hours.
2. Daily coordinate solutions, periodic velocity solutions, and plots of resulting positions or position differences are available promptly to the scientific community.
3. The only restriction attached to the data or products is that users acknowledge SCIGN and its funders (W.M. Keck Foundation, NASA, NSF, USGS, SCEC) as the source of the data. (Suggested text: "We acknowledge the Southern California Integrated GPS Network and its sponsors, the W.M. Keck Foundation, NASA, NSF, USGS, SCEC, for providing data used in this study.")
4. Other permanent networks cooperating with SCIGN and receiving benefits from SCIGN (hardware, software, logistic support, etc.) are required to adhere to the same data distribution policy.
BARGEN: what is the distribution of an 8 mm/yr rate across a 1000 km wide zone?Why push accuracy as high as possible?
Now we have methods that let us systematically answer what used to be impossible yet very important questionsBoth of these questions could clearly have been answered at a slower pace with mobile GPS instead of fixedContinuous GPS gives better answers faster, and will resolve conflicting scientific evidence much more rapidly
Important science and significant hazards can only be addressed by obtaining thehighest accuracies possible
