About this blog
This blog is about a group of geophysicists who are traveling to Haiti to conduct a GPS survey of Haiti to measure ground deformation following the Jan 12 earthquake. These measurements will help us understand important characteristics of how the fault slipped on Jan 12 and to track how the crust is continuing to deform after the earthquake. This research will help us understand how seismic hazards are evolving on several active faults in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. This field work is being supported by the National Science Foundation Tectonics Program (EAR), Geophysics Program (EAR), and the Americas Program in the NSF Office of International Science and Engineering. Technical support is being provided by UNAVCO.
