Executive Summary

The paper studies of recent crustal movements are based on analyses of repeated geodetic measurements, and their combination with results of geophysical and geological investigations. It is obvious that a single data producer can not produce useful datasets and information without integrating data from others because one scientist's results become another's data. So, the problem to be solved naturally has an interdisciplinary character. However, Earth scientists traditionally work on one aspect of the problem and they have a tradition of sharing of data but they are willing to share it if asked. Because of this, the resources are being wasted in duplicative efforts.
