Ground Truth Aftershock Locations in Tibet Using Results from InSAR

InSAR Results


Interferometric map showing the coseismic surface displacement Želd. One full-color cycle (blue-red-yellow-blue) represents 50 cm of ground shift away from satellite along the radar line of sight. Uncolored areas are zones of low phase coherence that have been masked before phase unwrapping. Small color discontinuities observed at frame boundaries are due to differences of incidence angles between adjacent tracks in overlapping regions.
