  3. Perfect Location UCSC Santa Cruz

  4. UCSC Banana Slugs

  5. UC Santa Cruz • Third Year • Earth Science/ Environmental Studies Major • Sierra Institute in fall

  6. Interests in School • Earth Sciences • Meteorology • Ocean Sciences

  7. Surf Report

  8. Plans for after Graduation

  9. Summer Internship Scripps Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics

  10. Purpose

  11. Provides high precision geodetic and geophysical measurements using Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites, particularly for the study of earthquake hazards, tectonic plate motion, plate boundary deformation, and meteorological purposes.

  12. GPS • Difference in Position • Mm accuracy

  13. Where I Work

  14. Where I Fit In • Real Time Data Processing (RTD) System • Precise second by second positioning. • Gamit Solutions vs. RTD Solutions. • Work out any bias in solutions.

  15. RTD • XYZ Solutions • Tropospheric Delay from atmosphere conditions • Ionospheric Delay • Statistical Analysis Ionospheric Delay Troposheric Delay

  16. Application in the Future Commercial Use of RTD • Cargo Ships • Plans • Cars • Personal Use

  17. Application for Surveyors • Highway Design • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) • Monitoring Bridges and Structures

  18. Application for Science • Crustal Deformation • Calculate strain build up on tectonic plates • Capture seismic event

  19. Success of Project • Strong horizontal accuracy (1-2mm) • Recognized vertical discrepancy ( 20mm)

  20. Next Step • Continue running a long term test • Find results for months worth of data • Make results conclusive
