Horizontal Ground Motion and Time Series
Yellowstone, Snake River Plain, and Wasatch Fault (1997-2005)

We estimate site velocity using ADDNEQ, a program that was developed to compute multi-session solutions from the combination of a set of single-session normal equations (.NEQ). We use an absolute-free strategy, where velocities are estimated with respect to a stable North American velocity frame that was obtained from the WUSC velocity solution.
The station time-series plots show the residuals of the ITRF2000 velocity field, together with daily weighted rms (one-sigma).
Data from continuous GPS stations operated by the University of Utah and other geoetic networks, including BARGEN , NGS-CORS, the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), and the Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO).
Error ellipses show two standard-deviations (95% confident intervals).
Stations with green circles do not have enough data (< one year) to obtain accurate velocity vectors.
