Mission Parameter Files and Documentation for GNSS-A data in Cascadia
These data were collected as part of GNSS-A operations on the Cascadia Subduction Zone, and can provide estimates of crustal deformation rates along the plate boundary. The data were collected on missions starting in 2016 by a remotely-operated Wave Glider system. The Wave Glider collects GNSS data while ranging to an array of seafloor transponders. All of the GNSS-A sites are located on the accretionary prism. These files provide the site coordinates, transponder IDs, Wave Glider transducer-antenna offsets, sensor models, file descriptions, and other documentation related to a Wave Glider mission and GNSS-A site. The file names identify the site, year and Wave Glider ID. The data files were generated with NSF funding as part of the projects called Constraining Slip Distribution of the Cascadia Subduction Zone Offshore Central Oregon with Seafloor Geodesy; and, Assessing the State of Locking on the Frontal Thrust of the Cascadia Subduction Zone With Seafloor Geodesy.
