The plates frames are defined using Euler rotation poles found in the supplement of Kreemer et al., 2014. The table is also separately available at this link. The format of the file is latitude(deg), longitude(deg), magnitude (deg/Myr), plate ID. To be entirely consisent with the assumed kinematic model, plate velocity at any latitude and longitude can then be computed using the formulas (B1) and (B2) in Kreemer et al., 2014, where Earth’s radius R = 6371 km.

Each station is associated with one or more tectonic plates, as defined by Bird, 2002. Every station is on at least one plate, but some stations can have more than one plate associated with them if the second plate is close. For every station there is at least one large plate in the set assigned to it (the large plates being PA, NA, SA, EU, AF, AN, AU). A text file that lists the plates associated with each station is available HERE.

Employment Opportunities

Graduate Student Opportunities

We are always interested in hearing from students or potential students in the fields of geodesy, tectonics, geophysics, geomatics, and mathematics who are interested in carrying out research in geodesy while studying for an M.S. or Ph.D in Geophysics at UNR.

Postdoctoral Opportunities

There are currently no advertised openings at the NGL, but we anticipate opening several postdoc positions in the near future.
