    My understand­ing is that GPS stands for “Global Positionin­g” I understand all about the receptors etc, but to believe they can say, with close accuracy, what the depth of the quake was. Again, i would think it’s more of an educated “guess” Do any of us really know for sure? I doubt it http://bit.ly/ilX9iU
