MONITORING THE MOVEMENT OF ST. CATHERINE’S POINT LIGHTHOUSE USING THE UNITED KINGDOM’s ACTIVE GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM NETWORK
This report provides a study of the statistical data extracted from the United Kingdom’s National Global Positioning System (GPS) Network, specifically Station SCP1 at St. Catherine’s Point Lighthouse on the Isle of Wight. The entire network consists of 30 continuously operating GPS reference stations located throughout Great Britain. These stations are permanently installed, precisely coordinated active GPS stations. The station at Saint Catherine’s Point on the Isle of Wight appears to have shifted from its original position. This was attributed to the extensive rainfall in the autumn and winter of 2000, which could have caused soil erosion at the base of the lighthouse. This perceived movement has impacted the initial coordinates of the site.
