Green (TLALOCNet) and blue (PBO-Mex and COCONet-Mex) dots show the location of GPS stations. Cyan and yellow dots are TLALOCNet contributed sites which will also be available soon. Red and orange dots are TLALOCNet sites which are planned for installation during 2015.

TLALOCNet is a combined atmospheric and tectonic cGPS-Met network in Mexico for the interrogation of climate, atmospheric processes, the earthquake cycle, and tectonic processes of Mexico. When completed, TLALOCNet will span all of Mexico and will link existing GPS infrastructure in North America and the Caribbean to create a continuous, federated network of networks spanning from Alaska to South America. NSF funds are being used to build 6 new cGPS stations at locations of high scientific value in Mexico and adjacent islands and upgrade 32 existing cGPS sites, including 19 funded by NSF and 13 funded by UNAM. The 38-station network will operate to the high standard of the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO) and the Continuously Operating Caribbean GPS Observational Network (COCONet). This effort builds on two decades of NSF investments in Mexico and was preceded by several years of preparation, community workshops, and multi-institutional planning.
