Earth Scope GPS Monitoring Station



While exploring the Mojave National Preserve, driving some of the powerline roads (see photo above), I came across something interesting. A solar powered, automated GPS receiving station with a transmitter for sending data to a collection point. It appears to be collecting seismic data for academic research.





It was clearly labeled to be an Earth Scope GPS Monitoring Station and had a nice poster explaining what it is.





I found this associated web site at earthscope.org.
