Bam Earthquake: D-INSAR Preliminary Result
On the 26th December 2003 an earthquake (Ms=6.6) shook a large area of the Kerman province in Iran. The epicenter of the devastating earthquake is located at 29.01°N/58.26°E. ESA has acquired ENVISAT radar data (ASAR_IMP_IS2) before and after the quake. Using three descending pass data sets (orbit 6687 9192 and 9693), acquired 11.06.2003, 03.12.2003 and 07.01.2004, respectively, we generated a differential interferogram showing the displacement changes in satellite direction (LOS). The topographic component derived from the data pair of orbits 9192/6687 was removed. The first figure is the radar intensity image centered on the city Bam.
