Note in proof: On October 9, as this article was being prepared for publication, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake occurred beneath the Jalisco region and caused significant loss of life and property. This earthquake highlights the societal need for accurate measurements of crustal strain rates in earthquake-prone zones. In the coming months, we plan to measure the amount of displacement that occurred within the GPS network during and after this earthquake.
