[SCG62-15] Probing the rheology of continental crust in the new era of big data geodesy

The dramatic increase in the availability of continuous GNSS stations and the launch of new radar satellite constellations like Sentinel-1 mean that we are entering a new "big data" era, where we will have long, accurate time series of surface motions for the entire planet. In this presentation, I will review what these new data are already telling us about the rheology of continental crust, and what we might learn in the future. I will use examples from the Alpine-Himalayan belt, focusing on observations and models of strain accumulation along the North Anatolian Fault, observations of postseismic deformation from continental earthquakes, and on data from the India-Asia collision zone.
