Hart RJA, Palmer NG. 2019. Kinematics of the New Zealand plate boundary: field report on GNSS surveys of the Taranaki Network in 2019 (TARA2019). Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. 26 p. (GNS Science report; 2019/69). doi:10.21420/EZHG-WX25.
Between March and June 2019, a combined team from GNS Science and Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) re-measured a network of 109 geodetic survey markers using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) methods throughout the Taranaki and Manawatu regions of New Zealand for monitoring the regional deformation due to tectonic processes. Included in the survey were 13 sites located in the Te Urewera mountains and Raukumara Peninsula that were observed to complete the requirements for the East Coast campaign from 2017. Previous comprehensive GNSS surveys of the Taranaki region have been carried out by the Department of Survey and Land Information (DoSLI) in 1995, GNS Science in 2000 (TARA2000, [Matheson and Beavan 2001]), 2003 (CNI2003 [Beavan 2004]) and 2011 (TARA2011). This report documents the field operations of the TARA2019 resurvey. It describes the logistics of the campaign, the sites occupied and the data collected. (auth)
