An Integrated Crustal Movement Monitoring Network in China
A integrated crustal movement monitoring network in China is being established and will be fully completed in 2000. The goals for the network are to reduction and mitigate the natural hazards and try to make a acceptable environment for the sustainable development in China. Besides, The network is useful for the improvement of the earthquake prediction, geodynamic study and kinematic monitoring of earth surface spheres (atmosphere, ionosphere ocean, crust) in China. It consists of 25 GPS permanent stations 56 GPS fundamental stations, 1000 regional stations, 2 fix VLBI, 4 fix SLR, 1 mobile VLBI and 2 mobile SLR. At the same period, the absolute and relative gravimetry and leveling will also be carried out in the network.
