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

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...

Understanding Of China’s Poyang Lake Water Surface Dynamics
2014-06-02 03:10:58

ESA As ESA and China mark a decade of cooperation, imagery over China’s Poyang lake is testament to the new Sentinel satellite’s promise of continued radar data acquisition for a multitude of applications. The Poyang lake in southern China’s Jiangxi province is the largest freshwater lake in the country. This lake is an important habitat for migrating Siberian cranes – many of which spend the winter there. The basin is also one of China's most important rice-producing...

UAVSAR Focuses On Andean Volcanoes
2014-05-27 03:35:07

Beth Hagenauer, NASA Volcanoes in Central and South America were the primary focus of a four-week Earth science study in late April and early May 2014 using a NASA-developed airborne synthetic aperture imaging radar. The Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar, or UAVSAR, developed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, was carried in a specialized pod on NASA's C-20A. The 29-day deployment ended May 6 when the aircraft returned to its base in...

Historic Earth Images From NASA Still Hold Research Value
2014-03-19 08:18:42

Carol Rasmussen, NASA NASA's Seasat satellite became history long ago, but it left a legacy of images of Earth's ocean, volcanoes, forests and other features that were made by the first synthetic aperture radar ever mounted on a satellite. Potential research uses for the recently released 35-year-old images are outlined in a paper published in the journal Eos today, March 18. Seasat, which was managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., was the first satellite...

Sink Hole Swallows Car In Chevy Chase, Maryland
2014-03-07 05:05:08

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...
