Papua New Guinea Tectonic Model

Site Velocity Predictions

This web form allows site velocities anywhere in Papua New Guinea to be calculated using the tectonic models of Tregoning et al. [1998, 1999, 2000a,b]. These models are derived from up to 10 years of GPS observations at over 20 sites throughout the country.

Use the form below to enter site coordinates (latitude, longitude) to calculate the plate on which the location resides and the predicted velocity of the location.

To calculate a site velocity, enter coordinates (ddd mm ss.ssss) below
