If this study is continued with GPS installation on the bed rocks for geodynamical investigations than it can be expected to understand the mechanisms which produce and shift the seismic activity to other regions.
These details are important for geodynamical modelling, which may one day predict complex geological processes such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
The results will likely have an impact on geodynamical studies of active orogens that have been glaciated, and can provide insights into the magnitude and fluctuation of sediment loading on the continental margin (e.g.

The SLR and LLR produce the absolute station coordinates, satellite orbits (of the so called geodynamical satellites) and EOP by means of measuring the station--satellite distance by pulse laser.
"The fact that there are physical problems and chemical ones, the fact that the data are seismological while the inferences are geodynamical, [means] no one person can handle the whole thing."

This paper is an exhaustive synthesis of the physical, biological and geodynamical evolution of the Lodeve Permian playa system.
