EPOS horizontal strain rates

Lantmäteriet calculates strain rates from GNSS-derived velocities. In solid Earth science strain rates are usually referred to deformation changes in the crust that can be calculated from GNSS-derived velocities, i.e. differences in position changes with time of a set of GNSS stations.

The European Plate Observing System (EPOS) is an international long-term, open accessible digital infrastructure to facilitate integrated access to and use of European solid Earth science data, data products, and facilities. Lantmäteriet is one of the EPOS Thematic Core Service (TCS) "GNSS Data and Products" analysis centres.

The strain-rate product is updated whenever a new official EPOS velocity field is made available through the EPOS Data Portal. This will be done within four weeks after the velocity field can be accessed.
