Measuring Crustal Deformation in the American West.
Jordan, Thomas H.; Minster, J. Bernard
Scientific American, v259 n2 p48-55,58 Aug 1988
Suggests that there is a close relationship between deformation in the western United States and the large-scale motions of tectonic plates. Introduces very-long-baseline interferometry (VLBI) as one of the space-geodetic techniques, vector addition of the VLBI data and geological data, and a new geodetic network. (YP)
