My graduate student, Simon Banville, has computed a pure "kinematic"  
GPS solution from the high-rate (1 Hz) data collected at the MISU and  
USUD IGS stations using the PPP approach. The results should be  
available on the GEO Supersite soon.

> 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:
