Abstract: The earthquake that occurred in Izmit, Turkey, in August 1999—along a fault line that is similar to the San Andreas Fault in Southern California—has provided useful data to researchers in the United States. The use of global positioning systems (GPS) to monitor fault line movement in less than 1 mm increments has provided a wealth of new knowledge to earthquake engineers.
