INSAR - Interferometric SAR

INTERFEROMETRIC FRINGES (colored bands) obtained from a sequence of radar scans by the ERS-1 satellite show the deformation of the ground caused by an earthquake near Landers, Calif., in 1992. Each cycle of interference colors (red through blue) represents an additional 28 millimeters of ground motion in the direction of the satellite. The radar interference caused by the mountainous relief of the area (black-and-white background) was removed to reveal this pattern of ground deformation.
