The 2015 Tajikistan Earthquake: Crustal deformation detected by ALOS-2 data
Crustal Deformation Observed by Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
Crustal Deformation revealed by InSAR
A large earthquake (Mw7.2, USGS) occurred in Tajikistan on December 7, 2015. We applied interferometric analysis using ALOS-2/PALSAR-2 data to measure the crustal deformation caused by the earthquake.
The result obtained from the data acquired by January 13, 2016 is summarized as follows.
Note that the result is possibly updated with further elaborated analyses.
