<p>The interseismic strain across the Altyn Tagh Fault at 85E has been measured using 59 interferograms from 26 ERS-1/2 SAR acquisitions on a single track for the period 1993 &ndash; 2000. Using an atmospheric delay correction that scales linearly with height, ...

<p>The 8th October 2005 Kashmir Earthquake Mw 7.6 involved primarily thrust motion on a NE-dipping fault. Sub-pixel correlation of ENVISAT SAR images gives the location of the 80 km-long fault trace (within 300&ndash; 800 m) and a 3D surface displacement field ...

<p>At depth, many fold-and-thrust belts are composed of a gently dipping, basal thrustfault and steeply dipping, shallower splay faults that terminate beneath folds at the surface.Movement on these buried faults is difficult to observe, but synthetic aperture ...

<p>The Mw 7.9, Denali fault earthquake (DFE) is the largest continental strike-slip earthquake to occur since the development of Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR). We use five interferograms, constructed using radar images from the Canadian ...

<p>In this article, it is reviewed some of the remarkable observations of the earthquake cycle already made using radar interferometry and speculate on breakthroughs that are tantalizingly close.</p>

<p>The North Anatolian Fault Zone (Fig. 1a) is one of the longest and most active strike-slip fault zones in the world. The area is studied by stacking multiple interferograms, after screening for atmospheric anomalies, respectively creating a new interferogram ...

<p>In this paper is used Synthetic Aperture Radar interferometry (InSAR) to map the displacement field of the 17 August 1999 Izmit earthquake, which largely conforms to that predicted for an elastic upper crust.</p>

<p>The 1 October 1995, Ms D 6:1 Dinar earthquake ruptured a 10 km section of the NW-SE Dinar-Civril fault. Thereare discrepancies between the published source parameters from seismic data, with seismic moments in disagreement by over a factor of two. We use ...
