The 2021 Haiti Earthquake: Crustal deformation detected by ALOS-2 data
Crustal Deformation Observed by Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
An earthquake (M 7.2, USGS) occurred in the Republic of Haiti on August 14, 2021 (UTC). To measure the crustal deformation caused by this earthquake, we applied interferometric analysis using ALOS-2/PALSAR-2 data.The analysis clearly revealed the spatial distribution of crustal deformation.
