THE WESTERN ANTARCTIC GPS NETWORK

Project Description
The West Antarctic GPS Network (WAGN) is a joint project involving The University of Texas at Austin Institute for Geophysics (UTIG), the Pacific GPS Facility (PGF) at the University of Hawaii School of Ocean Science and Technology, and the Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI) at the University of Memphis. Researchers from these institutions are using the Global Positioning System (GPS), a precise satellite-based navigation system, to measure crustal motions of the bedrock underlying and surrounding the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS).
