Description: Notice of Intent to award a cooperative agreement to the University of Calfornia Berkely (UCB) pursuant to the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) in support of the project entitlied "The BARD Continuous GPS Network: Monitoring Earthquake Hazards in Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area, 2020". The main objecitve of the project is long-term monitoring of interseismic deformation for dynamic seismic hazard assessment and investigation of fault creep and transient phenomena, and use of real-time and near real-time data for earthquake likelihood forecasting, earthquake early warning, rapid response, and assessment of immediate postseismic motion via the UCB Geodetic Network. UCB is uniquely qualified to carry out the objecitves as they are the largest USGS-supported geodetic network in the Bay Area. UCB’s well-developed network staff is also of great benefit to this proposed study. The PIs have been extensively involved with this effort as geodetic network operators. In addition, specialized equipment is needed for monitoring and has been deployed by UCB in the regions of monitoring. Some of the field sensors and central recording and computing equipment is university-owned and would not be available to another source. Furthermore, data from the instruments is transmitted to the universities’ facilities and relocation of the data receiving point and telemetry equipment would be costly and time-consuming.
