NNR-MORVEL56 angular velocities in no-net-rotation frame
Each plate rotates counterclockwise relative to the no-net-rotation reference frame.
'Rms' is the root mean square velocity of the plate relative to the no-net-rotation
reference frame. Plate areas are in steradians for a unit sphere and total to 4 pi.
Angular rotation rate confidence limits are 95%. Plate abbreviations given in lower case
are for plates included in MORVEL. Plate abbreviations given in upper case are
for plates from Bird (2003).
Calculations of plate velocities at specific locations on Earth's surface with all possible
paired permutations of the above angular velocities can be made with the motion calculator
available in the left column of this page.
