The Global Positioning System has been used to measure the relative displacements of fifteen monuments in a hundred-year-old triangulation network spanning part of the Aegean extensional basin. These displacements reflect the tectonic deformation of the region over the past century, showing more than one metre of north-south extension across the network. The crust in this region appears to contain a few slowly deforming blocks separated by more rapidly deforming zones. (EN)
