The Hikurangi margin geophysical monitoring network (HiMNet) is a telemetered network of 49 short‐period (1 s) seismometers and 80 continuously recording Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS; currently based on the Global Positioning System [GPS] constellation) stations in the Hikurangi subduction margin forearc, New Zealand. HiMNet was established between 2001 and 2011 to monitor continuous and transient deformation and seismic activity near the Hikurangi subduction zone. The resulting data have enabled the contemporary behavior and earthquake potential of the Hikurangi subduction zone to be better understood and for earthquake and ground deformation assessments to be carried out with increased precision immediately...
