GPS Tracking Reveals San Andreas Fault Activity

GPS tracking earthquakes

GPS technology has recently revealed some activity along the  San Andreas Fault in California.  The earth on each side of the fault has been found to be moving a few millimeters a year. While this movement was something scientists had predicted for some time, they had been unable to detect a particular pattern due to “noise” or interference in the feedback they were receiving.  A new GPS technology has helped eliminate the “noise” for a more clear understanding of tectonic movement, particularly the vertical movement around the San Andreas Fault.



China Moving Toward Its Own GPS Tracking 

China GPS Tracking


On June 12, 2016, China launched the 23rd GPS tracking satellite in the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System–China’s network of its own GPS tracking satellites.
