... His principal area of research has been the study of crustal deformation within active seismic areas on the west coast of Canada using geodetic techniques such as leveling, precise gravity, laser-ranging trilateration, and GPS. Under his direction, the Geological Survey of Canada established the Western Canada Deformation Array, the first continuous GPS network in Canada for the express purpose of monitoring crustal motions.
