A magnitude 7.8 earthquake occurred at 06:12:44 UTC (22:12:42 local) on July 22, 2020, 105 km SSE of Perryville, Alaska. The earthquake is referred to by the Alaska Earthquake Center as the Simeonof earthquake. For more information, see the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program event page or the Alaska Earthquake Center event page.
The event occured within the Network of the Americas (NOTA) footprint. NOTA is a core component of the NSF Geodetic Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience (GAGE), operated by UNAVCO.
NOTA GPS/GNSS Real Time Data Solutions
There are 41 real-time-enabled GPS/GNSS stations within 1550 km of the epicenter. Real-time stations continuously stream high rate (1-sps / 1 Hz) data to UNAVCO. Typical latencies for real-time stations, the time lapse between and observation being recorded on the receiver and it arriving in Boulder are less than 1 second. The radius is based on 2 cm predicted dyanamic displacements.
GAGE GPS/GNSS Displacement Estimates
The GAGE AC (MIT) inspects the NOTA GPS/GNSS daily positions for significant offsets when they have two to three days of post-event data. Offsets for this event are now available.
Note: Figures and findings are preliminary and subject to revision.
