Continuous GPS measurements in Iceland - the ISGPS network

The Icelandic Meteorological Office operates a network of continuous geodetic GPS stations in Iceland to monitor crustal deformation related to plate movements, volcanic unrest and earthquakes. With geodetic quality instruments and specialized software it is possible to achieve the daily position of the stations to within a few millimeters. CGPS stations are therefor an excellent tool to monitor crustal deformation.
On this page you will find general information about the measurements. You can also download data from the ISGPS sites and view results from the measurements.
