Palmer, N.G. 2010 Kinematics of the New Zealand plate boundary : field report on GPS surveys of the East Coast network in 2009 (EC2009) Lower Hutt, N.Z.: GNS Science. GNS Science report 2010/23 45 p.
Abstract: During a 17 day period in February 2009, a combined team from GNS Science and Land Information New Zealand measured a Global Positioning System (GPS) network throughout the East Coast, East Cape, and Taupo Volcanic Zone area of the North Island of New Zealand. This “EC2009” campaign is intended to repeat previous comprehensive GPS surveys that have been carried out in these areas since 1995. This report documents the field operations of the “EC2009” resurvey. It describes the logistics of the campaign, the sites occupied and the data collected. The observations are part of a Foundation for Research, Science and Technology (FRST) supported project “Impacts of Plate Tectonics in and around New Zealand” at GNS Science. It is intended that these observations will be used in continuing studies into earth deformation within New Zealand. (auth)
