Radar Images Used To Map Napa Valley Earthquake
2014-09-03 03:11:52

ESA Sentinel-1A has added yet another string to its bow. Radar images from this fledgling satellite have been used to map the rupture caused by the biggest earthquake that has shaken northern California in 25 years. Scientists collaborating through the UK Natural Environment Research Council’s Centre for the Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonics (COMET), used Sentinel-1A’s special capabilities to analyze the quake. ‘Synthetic aperture radar...

Sentinel-1
2014-08-27 04:00:58

European Space Agency Although it was only launched a few months ago and is still being commissioned, the new Sentinel-1A radar satellite has already shown that it can be used to generate 3D models of Earth’s surface and will be able to closely monitor land and ice surface deformation. As the first in a fleet of satellite missions for Europe’s Copernicus environmental monitoring program, Sentinel-1A was launched on 3 April. It carries an advanced radar instrument to image Earth’s...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports – Your Universe Online For well over a year now, sinkholes have been in the news, as the geological features have been responsible for incidents such as the February 2013 death of a Florida man whose entire bedroom was swallowed up by one and the more recent damaging of eight historic automobiles at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky. Now, NASA has revealed a new analysis of airborne radar data collected in 2012 which shows that the instruments...

WASHINGTON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New analyses of NASA airborne radar data collected in 2012 reveal the radar detected indications of a huge sinkhole before it collapsed and forced evacuations near Bayou Corne, La. that year. http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20081007/38461LOGO The findings suggest such radar data, if collected routinely from airborne systems or satellites, could at least in some cases foresee sinkholes before they happen, decreasing danger to...

NASA Completes Icelandic Glacier Winter Movement Radar Study
2014-02-10 08:26:13

Beth Hagenauer - NASA The cold of an Icelandic winter did not stop one NASA science aircraft from completing a mission to map glaciers on the island during the past week. NASA's C-20A, based at the Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, Calif., flew four radar missions from Keflavik International Airport near Reykjavik, Iceland. The aircraft carries a precision NASA synthetic aperture radar, developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., that uses a...
