NASA Tests GPS Monitoring System for Big U.S. Quakes – NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

July 28, 2013 NASA Test Real Time GPS Monitoring System for Big U.S. EarthquakesThe space-based technology that lets GPS-equipped motorists constantly update their precise location will undergo a major test of its ability to rapidly pinpoint the location and magnitude of strong earthquakes across the western United States.

Pictured above, Location of the more than 500 real-time GPS monitoring stations in the western United States that make up the Real-Time Earthquake Analysis for Disaster Mitigation Network. The networks stations are overlain on a U.S. Geological Survey seismic hazard map showing areas forecast to have a 10-percent probability of exceeding a certain level of ground shaking within the next 50 years. (Areas in shades of red have the strongest shaking, while areas in green shades have the weakest shaking.)

This prototype system is a significant step towards realizing the goal of providing Pacific basin-wide natural hazards capability around the Pacific ‘Ring of Fire”Click the link below for the full story.
