Southern Qinghai, China Earthquake in 2010: Crustal deformation detected by ALOS/PALSAR data
Crustal Deformation Observed by Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
Crustal Deformation by InSAR and Fault Model
A M=6.9 (USGS) earthquake occurred in Qinghai, China on April 13, 2010 (UTC). An interferometric analysis of the data acquired by the Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) onboard the Advanced Land Observation Satellite (ALOS) allows us to clarify spatial distribution of surface deformation associated with the earthquake.
