We combine horizontal Global Positioning System (GPS) velocities from a new compilation of published and new GPS velocities, results from an interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) study, and paleoseismic data to evaluate the postseismic response of historic earthquakes in the Central Nevada seismic belt. We assume that GPS velocity has contributions from time-invariant (i.e., steady permanent crustal deformation) and transient (i.e., time varying and associated with the seismic cycle) processes that are attributable to postseismic viscoelastic relaxation of the crust and upper mantle. In order to infer the viscosity structure of Basin and Range lower crust, ηLC, and...
