GPS Network

Crustal deformation studies using Global Positioning System (GPS) across active faults in Gujarat

GPS measurements and crustal deformation

During 2006 to 2009, ISR has installed 25 permanent stations in and around Gujarat and eleven campaign stations in Kachchh region. All these stations are shown in fig. below and the latitude, longitude with their date of installation are summarized in Table 1(a), 1(b) and 1(c). Number of stations : 40

[The red triangles represent existing permanent stations, green triangles represent proposed permanent stations and blue circles represent campaign stations.]
