EARS_King Geodesy:Velocity
GPS velocity field (MIT 2019.0) for the East African Rift System generated by King et al.
This GPS-derived velocity field for East Africa was generated from continuous (cGPS) and survey-mode (sGPS) data acquired between 1994 and December 2018 and is part of a larger regional velocity field determination (Investigators Robert King, Michael Floyd, Robert Reilinger). The data files are in ASCII text format and were created as part of the collaborative project called A Community Velocity Field for East Africa. They are an updated version of the 2016 solutions that are available at Also included is documentation describing the data sources and calculations used in generating the updated velocity field. Funding was provided by NSF grants EAR-1551753 and EAR-1551823.
Device Info
The data have been processed/modified to a level beyond that of basic quality control (e.g. final processed sonar data, photo-mosaics).
