Rationale for Antarctic Continuous GPS stations and Constraints on Station Architecture
Continuous GPS measurements contribute to understanding the interaction between ice sheet history and dynamics, and earth rheology. Support time-varying gravity measurements of ice mass change.
Current results favor recent ice mass change - indicating smaller scale gradients are expected

Proposed TAM CGPS Network continues decadal-length times series at 4 sites
Network proposed in 2004 (Raymond et al.) is designed to measure glacioisostatic deformation in region most sensitive to testing models
