GPS time series data station NRWY Yellowstone, Norris Geyser Basin

Detailed Description

GPS time series from station NRWY, near Norris Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park. The three plots show how the station is moving in a north-south direction (top), east-west direction (middle), and up-down direction (bottom). The positions are relative to the North American plate, so plate motion is effectively removed, and changes in position are due to dynamic processes, like faulting and subsurface fluid movement, occurring in the Yellowstone region.
