Latest Interferometric synthetic aperture radar Stories
Scientists are crediting satellite imagery with helping to predict where volcanic eruptions could strike. It is well known that earthquakes can stress Earthâ€™s crust and trigger subsequent quakes, but there has been no proof of this for volcanoes until now.
New NASA airborne radar images of Southern California near the U.S.-Mexico border show Earth's surface is continuing to deform.
In response to the disaster in Haiti on Jan 12, NASA has added a series of science overflights of earthquake faults in Haiti and the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola to a previously scheduled three-week airborne radar campaign to Central America.
A team from the University of Miami, University of El Paso and University of Rochester have employed Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) images compiled over a decade to study volcanic activity in the African Rift.
Using satellite radar data and GPS measurements, Chinese researchers have explained the exceptional geological events leading to the 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake that killed nearly 90,000 people in Chinaâ€™s Sichuan Province.
Western China is a very seismically active area and has had many catastrophic earthquakes during its history.
When a swarm of hundreds of small to moderate earthquakes erupted beneath California's Salton Sea in March, sending spasms rumbling across the desert floor, it set off more than just seismometers.
Envisat and ERS-2, ESA's two veteran Earth missions, have completed a second tandem observation campaign.
Studying satellite radar data from ESAâ€™s Envisat and the Italian Space Agencyâ€™s COSMO-SkyMed, scientists have begun analyzing the movement of Earth during and after the 6.3 earthquake that shook the medieval town of Lâ€™Aquila in central Italy on 6 April 2009.
UM, Oxford study in Geophysical Journal International uncovers tectonic events behind earthquake that killed 595 in Peru.
