Event response pages are a service to help coordinate community science after an earthquake or other notable geophysical event by collecting relevant data. Findings and figures are preliminary and subject to revision.
The UNAVCO team sends our sympathy to the people of Haiti. We’re driven in our mission to measure and study the Earth by the hope that our work will ultimately lead to communities that are more resilient to geologic hazards.
At 12:29:09 (UTC) on August 14, a shallow magnitude 7.2 earthquake occurred 12 kilometers northeast of Saint-Louis du Sud in Haiti, with oblique reverse motion on the fault. The event occurred within the footprint of the Network of the Americas (NOTA), a network of continuous GPS/GNSS stations and borehole instruments operated by UNAVCO that monitors plate motion and transient deformation, in addition to other applications. For more information about the earthquake, see the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program event page.
This list of stations will be updated as high-rate data is downloaded and archived.
