Institute of Geodynamics GPS Network

The monitoring of crustal deformation is one of the new goals of the National Observatory of Athens. Greece is one of the most active areas in the planet with crustal motions of the order of several cm per year, related to plate movements in the Eastern Mediterranean. Modern survey techniques, including space geodesy, have the sensitivity to detect motions of this magnitude over a few years time and thus can be used to address how Greece is deforming today.
