KINEMATIC REFERENCE FRAME CONSIDERATIONS The kinematic reference frame that was adopted for the combinedsolutionis defined by NUVEL-1 No Net Rotation (NNR) modeledhorizontalvelocitiesfor the SLR stationat that horizontal deformation associated with this seismicity would be of an amount sufficient to corrupt significantly the assumption of stable behavior between Greenbelt and Westford. The rate for the Greenbelt-Gilmore Creek line is indeterminable due to non-similar observing technologies at the end points of the line.

Relative Geodesic Rates Across the North Atlantic From SLR and VLBI (all unitsmm/yr) Greenbelt - Grasse - Graz - Matera - Onsala -RGO - Wettzell McDon. Obs. -Grasse - Graz - Matera - Onsala Platteville two SLR sites is less than that predictedby the NUVEL-1 NNR model. This was noted in Smith et al. [1990] as well. It is worth noting that the semi-majoraxes of the error ellipses are oriented in a largely north/southdirection. Once again, in a fashion similar to the European situation,the ellipses are Richmond closely aligned with the direction of the motion recovered.

Once again, in a fashion similar to the European situation,the ellipses are Richmond closely aligned with the direction of the motion recovered. Referring to Figure 10, it is evident that the north/south componentof motion is only weakly determinedfrom rates to Japanand, in the caseof the Yaragadeesite, from the rate to Arequipa.
