Motion and rigidity of the Pacific Plate and implications for plate boundary deformation

Beavan, J.; Tregoning, Paul; Bevis, M.; Kato, T; Meertens, C


Using up to 11 years of data from a global network of Global Positioning System (GPS) stations, including 12 stations well distributed across the Pacific Plate, we derive present-day Euler vectors for the Pacific Plate more precisely than has previously been possible from space geodetic data. After rejecting on statistical grounds the velocity of one station on each of the Pacific and North American plates, we find that the quality of fit of the horizontal velocities of 11 Pacific Plate (PA)...[Show more]
