In this activity, students use data on fault motion (derived from the horizontal movement of a GPS monument) to calculate the number of earthquakes necessary to build a mountain range. They will also determine the...
In this activity, students calculate the distance from a satellite to a receiving station on Earth. They will learn that radio signals are waves and that wave characteristics can be used to measure properties such as...
By examining GPS time series plots from stations on opposing sides of the San Andreas Fault, students will determine the relative movement between the two stations. They can then apply this to calculate the time it will...
In this activity, students use time series data from a Global Positioning System (GPS) station in the Southern California Integrated GPS Network (SCIGN) to calculate the station's rate of movement. From time series...
