UNAVCO Response

GPS Data - Custom Downloads for Post Processing
In response to the 2018-07-19 M6.0 Chernabura Island, AK earthquake, UNAVCO has downloaded high-rate 1-sps (1 Hz) GPS/GNSS data from Plate Boundary Observatory stations within ~200 km of the epicenter for a 6-hour time window around the event (± 3 hours). A map of GPS stations being downloaded is shown in Figure 2. These data will be available from the UNAVCO high rate data ftp site. UNAVCO has also downloaded data from the same stations in response to the 2018-07-21 M5.4 aftershock event.

GPS Displacements
As more data become available in the coming days, Tom Herring (MIT), the GAGE GPS Analysis Center Coordinator (ACC), will estimate any observed coseismic offsets associated with this earthquake.
