SPREADING RATES

General Information:

  • This exercise is one that is required
  • It involves examination of the relative rates of plate motion based on three separate methodologies:
    • Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI).
    • Global Positioning Systems (GPS).
    • Calculations of plate velocity and seafloor spreading (NUVEL-1).
  • The questions are given on the next three pages ( forward ) and in  oncourse .
  • Answers to all questions should be submitted via oncourse .
  • Check the exercise set I noticeboard ( news ) for announcements.
