This is a Reduced Scientific Report resulting from NERC Geophysical Equipment Facility Minor Loan 1021, principal investigator Prof Tim Wright.


In January/February 2014, 4 x GS10 GNSS receivers were used as part of a wider GNSS campaign in Afar, Ethiopia. The particular focus of the GEF instruments was to carry out campaign measurements in the vicinity of the 2005-2010 Dabbahu Rifting epsiode (Wright et al., 2012). The scientific aim was to understand the postintrusion response of the lithosphere.
