GPS Used to Calculate Impact of Indian Ocean Tsunami


Using data obtained from 60 GPS monitoring sites in southeast Asia, scientists have calculated some of the earth impacts of the tsunami. The data was used to construct and test models of the length of the rupture that formed at the bottom of the ocean and the direction of thrust.

“We show that the rupture plane for this earthquake must have been at least 1,000 kilometers long.”
