Borehole Strainmeter Data
In response to the M7.8 earthquake 7.8 earthquake 53km NNE of Amberley, New Zealand on 2016-11-13 11:02:56 (UTC), UNAVCO has processed high rate one-sample-per-second (1-sps or 1 Hz) borehole strainmeter data from all borehole strainmeters in the Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO). The fully processed 1-sps borehole strainmeter (BSM) dataset spanning the time period of this event is now available at http://borehole.unavco.org/bsm/earthquakes/
Rapid GPS Time Series
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) produces real-time GPS results for IGS stations, available via https://ga.gdgps.net/archived_performance.php. The Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis (ARIA) Center for Natural Hazards is posting rapid and refined displacements.
The Nevada Geodetic Laboratory produces rapid GPS/GNSS time series for all available GPS data, globally. The ultra-rapid GPS plots of five-minute solutions automatically update every hour. For New Zealand, this includes data from IGS stations and also a much denser data set from networks maintained by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) and GeoNet.
