News 2009 GAP for the 2009 L'Aquila Emergency

COSMO-SkyMED post-seismic ground monitoring in the areas stricken by the L'Aquila earthquake

November 1, 2009

In the framework of the MORFEO Project (MOnitoraggio e Rischio da Frana mediante dati EO), GAP srl is monitoring the post-seismic ground movements in the areas stricken by the L'Aquila earthquake (in Fig.1 the co-seismic displacement pattern revealed by COSMO- SkyMED). First results have been obtained by processing 26 SAR images acquired from all the COSMO-SkyMED sensor actually in orbit, since mid-April to mid-Septembre 2009 ( Acquisition Mode: HIMAGE; Incidence Angle: ~40°; Look Side/Pass Direction: Right/Ascending) with the SPINUA © multitemporal interferometric processing chain. Strong movements have been detected around the towns of Paganica and Tempera, close to the outcrop of the fault that originated the Mw 6.3 earthquake on April 6, 2009, as shown in Fig.2.
