UNAVCO Community,

We now have a report from Jeff Freymueller of 5-6 meter GPS determined surface displacements along the northeast coast of Japan.   

This message contains information on the activities that UNAVCO has undertaken in response to Friday's great earthquake in northeastern Japan. Please find these resources on our web site:

	• UNAVCO Science Highlight, features geodetic resources, including a GPS-determined displacement field from Japan's Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion. It also contains useful links to other results and community resources.

	• Freddy Blume is the event response coordinator for this earthquake and is UNAVCO's point of contact:  blume at unavco.org. 

	• Please use the forum for communications and updates, so those who join the conversation at a later time can access the entire thread:  

	• Many preliminary results and other resources are already posted to these UNAVCO web pages:
