>> GPS DATA:
>> Standard daily (15sec) files from permanent station in the Caribbean
>> are available from the UNAVCO Data Archive Interface
>> http://facility.unavco.org/data/dai.html
>>
>>
>> High rate GPS data:
>> UNAVCO is downloading 5 Hz data from the Caribbean Hurricane  
>> Prediction
>> Network (PI: Dr. John Braun) and these data have been made  
>> available at:
>> ftp://data-out.unavco.org/pub/highrate/rinex/
>>
>> 1Hz data is available at the UNAVCO archive from the Puerto Rico
>> Network (PI; Guoquan Wang). 10Hz data is also being downloaded and  
>> made
>> available.
>>
>> Data from PBO station P780 is being downloaded too and is available  
>> at
>> the UNAVCO archive
>>
>>
>> BOREHOLE GEOPHYSICS DATA:
>> Borehole strainmeter data from the PBO network are also available.
>> Relevant to this earthquake, borehole strainmeter data from PBO are
>> found at:
>> http://borehole.unavco.org/bsm/earthquakes/HaitiRegion_20100112/
>>
>>
>> PBO strainmeter data can always be found linked of the program's  
>> home page:
>> http://pboweb.unavco.org/
>>
>>
>> PBO Borehole seismometer data are archived at IRIS.edu.
>>
>>
>> SAR data:
>> There are no SAR data for the earthquake area currently in the WInSAR
>> or EarthScope archives. There are plans to assemble data which will  
>> be
>> made available through the Supersites website at
>> http://supersites.unavco.org/main.php. We are in the process of  
>> posting
>> the plans on the site.
>>
>> If you need more specific information that is not forthcoming from
