Palmer, N.G. 2010 Kinematics of the New Zealand plate boundary : field report on GPS surveys of the Wellington and South Wairarapa network in 2009 (WELL2009) Lower Hutt, N.Z.: GNS Science. GNS Science report 2010/39 22 p.
Abstract: During an 11 day period in March 2009, a team from GNS Science measured a Global Positioning System (GPS) network throughout the Wellington and South Wairarapa area of the North Island of New Zealand. This WELL2009 campaign is a subset of the Wellington & South Wairarapa network which was surveyed comprehensively in February 2007 (WELL2007). It is intended to provide a first reoccupation of twenty-six stations that were occupied for the first time during the WELL2007 survey. Two additional stations were occupied in November 2009 in conjunction with the New Zealand Institute of Surveyors as a part of activities marking the centenary of the first measurement of the Wairarapa geodetic baseline in 1909. This report documents the field operations of the “WELL2009” resurvey, including the occupations made in November. 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)
