G010. Hydrological signals in geodetic data: New observations, models and techniques

Session Description: Geodesy is becoming increasingly important for observing the hydrological cycle and its effects on solid Earth shape. For example, GPS and InSAR measurements respectively provide high temporal and spatial resolution to study natural hydrologically-related deformation and monitor anthropogenic groundwater extraction and recharge, whereas GRACE is helping to track changes in the global terrestrial water storage. Signals of loading from changes in surface and groundwater storage are seen from basin to continental scale. Additionally, GPS reflectometry is in operational use for monitoring soil moisture and snow depth at continuous GPS stations in the western USA and Canada. In light of these developments, we invite contributions describing new observations and models of hydrological signals in geodetic time series and/or imaging. Studies exploring deformation induced by loading extraction/recharge, techniques for removing hydrological signals from geodetic time series, or teleconnections between terrestrial and oceanic phenomena, are particularly encouraged.

G014. Plate Motion, Continental Deformation, and Interseismic Strain Accumulation

Session Description: Space geodetic data, geophysical and geologic observations and models constrain how plate motion is being taken up by continental deformation and how elastic strain accumulates between earthquakes.  We invite geodetic, (e.g., GNSS, InSAR, VLBI, etc) and geologic and geophysical studies (e.g., fault slip rates, seismicity, and marine magnetic anomalies) that characterize stable plate interiors, plate boundary zone deformation and interseismic strain accumulation. New efforts using modern cyberinfrastructure and open software are particularly welcome. Can elastic strain build-up be readily related to future great earthquakes?  What fraction of plate motion is taken up by fault slip during earthquakes, and what fraction becomes part of distributed deformation off the major faults?  How does fault slip inferred from paleoseismology add up to present-day plate motion?  How fast are mountains currently rising?  To what degree do postseismic transients perturb the nearly constant velocity of the plates and influence the definition of Earth's reference frame?
