Employing geodesy to study temporal variability at a mid-ocean ridge



This article is one of a series on the Ridge InterDisciplinary Global Experiments (RIDGE) Program. We outline the geodetic portion of the interdisciplinary studies of ridge crest active processes. The first article provided an overview of the program [Detrick and Humphris, 1994] and the second [Forsyth and Chave, 1994] described a major experiment to be conducted in 1995 and 1996 that will investigate the processes supplying magma for the continuous creation of new ocean floor.
