A magnitude 6.5 earthquake occurred at 11:03:27 UTC (04:03:27 local) on May 15, 2020, 56 km west of Tonopah, Nevada. For more information, see the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program event page.
The event occured within the Network of the Americas (NOTA) footprint. NOTA is a core component of the NSF Geodetic Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience (GAGE), operated by UNAVCO.
NOTA GPS/GNSS Real Time Data Solutions
11 GPS/GNSS stations within 300 km of the epicenter were operating in real-time during the event, i.e., they were continuously streaming high rate (1-sps / 1 Hz) data to UNAVCO (Figure 1). Typical latencies for real-time stations, the time lapse between and observation being recorded on the receiver and it arriving in Boulder are less than 1 second.
GAGE GPS/GNSS Displacement Estimates
The GAGE GNSS Analysis Center (MIT) has calculated coseismic offsets for stations in the area (Figure 8). Observed offsets are available in the event file.
Note: Figures and findings are preliminary and subject to revision.
