Recent geological and geodetic studies have suggested that the region surrounding Vandenberg AFB, CA is undergoing active crustal deformation. In 1989 funding under this grant was used to purchase five GPS receivers and to begin a series of measurements designed to determine the magnitude and spatial distribution of deformation in a region encompassing the major faults and folds within 50 km of Vandenberg. Four receivers were acquired in January 1990 and experiments were performed in February and September. The fifth receiver will be sited near the former NASA Very Long Baseline site and will become integrated into the Permanent GPS Geodetic Array in California.
