By examining GPS time series plots from stations on opposing sides of the San Andreas Fault, students will determine the relative movement between the two stations. They can then apply this to calculate the time it will take for Los Angeles to reach San Francisco. Background information and necessary equations are provided. There is also a link provided to print out the time series. Full description.
