Abstract: A decade of observations in geodetic mode with the VLBA network gave valuable results. Approximately 1/5 of all geodetic observations are recorded in VLBA mode and processed at the Socorro correlator. Ten years of observations allowed us to reliably measure slow intra-plate motion of the VLBA stations located on the North-American plate. It also helped us to achieve scientific objectives of geodetic programs: verify models of harmonic and anharmonic site position variations caused by various loadings, improve models of core-mantle boundary, investigate mantle rheology and solve other tasks.
