Nepal Earthquakes Palsar-2 Interferograms

A devastating earthquake of magnitude 7.8 occured in Nepal on 25 April 2015. On 12 May aftershocks of magnitude 7.3 were registered.

The image above shows the unwrapped coseismic differential interferogramof the Palsar-2 SAR acquisitions of 5 April and 3 May 2015 with 10 cm LOS displacement per color cycle (covering the first earthquake).
