The model is based on the largest self-consistent set of secular velocities
It is the best estimate of present-day plate motions and strain accumulation, being potentially released through earthquake events
The model is a significant improvement over the one that was produced in 2004
The model includes estimates of uncertainty; while GPS velocity uncertainties are typically 0.1-0.3 mm/yr, the strain rate uncertainty at any point is largely dependent on the GPS station density.

Strain rate measures how fast the outer solid part of the earth (the lithosphere) is being deformed due to tectonic plate movement. At some places, the li...
