Bay Area Regional Deformation Network (BARD)

BARD is a network of continuously operating Global Positioning System receivers in Northern California. The primary goal of the network is to monitor crustal deformation across the Pacific-North America plate boundary and in the San Francisco Bay Area for earthquake hazard reduction studies and rapid earthquake emergency response assessment. For current BARD network information as well as individual station pages, please see the Berkeley Seismological Lab's BARD pages.
