La UNAVCO (University NAVSTAR Consortium) mantiene en linea sobre su sitio internet, un calculador de movimiento de placas para obtener las velocidades de estaciones o ubicaciones geograficas a partir de diferentes modelos de placas tectonicas, entre las cuales se seleccionaron cinco (5) para el presente estudio:
org), un procesamiento mediante el empleo de modelos de movimiento de placas tectonicas, contenidos en diversas soluciones de calculos ofrecidas por UNAVCO y el modelo VEMOS2009, con el proposito de determinar las velocidades y la orientacion de sus desplazamientos en funcion del tiempo.
La mayoria de los modelos se calcularon aplicando el UNAVCO Plate Motion Calculator, en linea desde la Web, excepto el modelo VEMOS2009 que se obtuvo mediante la aplicacion del programa desarrollado por (Drewes and Heidbach, 2009).
Se emplearon los datos del UNAVCO Plate Motion Calculator para el modelo MORVEL2010.
As a result of an agreement between UNAVCO and CENIC, some of the strainmeters and GPS stations in California will connect through various CalREN K-12 node sites and their data transmitted over CalREN to the UNAVCO data archives in Boulder, CO.
Kyle Bohnenstiehl, PBO Site Permit Coordinator, comments that, "EarthScope and UNAVCO are very excited about being able to use local California K-12 schools, which are home to 4 sites so far, to not only host the stations but relay this important data back to scientists using the CENIC Internet2 connection.
After the instruments' data has been collected at UNAVCO's Boulder site, UNAVCO will work with a peer organization of CENIC, the FrontRange GigaPoP in Colorado, to achieve connectivity with Internet2 by June 2006.
UNAVCO is a consortium of research institutions, and its mission is to support and promote Earth science by advancing high-precision techniques for the measurement and understanding of deformation.
GPS RINEX data were provided by the NASA MEaSUREs Solid Earth Science ESDR System project through the SOPAC archive and by the UNAVCO
Facility with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant No.
It therefore seemed like somewhat of a miracle when in May 2014 a team of atmospheric and geodetic scientists from UNAVCO and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) sent and helped set up a global positioning system (GPS) receiver to measure atmospheric water vapor at the Grupo de Optica Atmosferica de Camaguey (GOAC) at the Camaguey Meteorological Center in Camaguey, Cuba.
John Braun, a scientist at UCAR who had a close relationship with scientists and engineers at UNAVCO, received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to install a small network of ground-based GPS stations in the Caribbean for atmospheric applications.
Juan Carlos Antuna-Marrero was invited to attend the meeting and had his trip supported by UNAVCO using the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) general license.
