Abstract: A Global Positioning System (GPS) survey in the south Rotorua region was conducted during a two-week period late in February 2000. This survey, designated ROTO2000, was designed to: repeat 1995 GPS and earlier terrestrial surveys of the south Rotorua network; repeat for the first time other 1990 and 1991 GPS surveys in the same vicinity, and in particular, the sites established about the Okataina caldera; extend these networks to the east to more fully sample Kaingaroa fault deformation, to confirm inferences from the precise levelling analyses; survey precisely some of the SAR reflector sites. This report documents the survey, describing logistics of the campaign and identifying the stations occupied and the data collected. (auth)
