Title: Analysis of large, seismically induced, gravitational deformations imaged by high-resolution COSMO-SkyMed synthetic aperture radar
Title of journal: Geology
Series/Report no.: 6/39 (2011)
Publisher: GSA
Issue Date: 2011
DOI: 10.1130/G31748.1
Keywords: DInSAR
Deep Seated Gravitational Slope Deformations
Abstract: Using differential synthetic aperture radar interferometry (DInSAR) on COSMO-SkyMed (Constellation of Small Satellites for the Mediterranean Basin Observation) data, we obtain an accurate and spatially continuous measure of the coseismic ground displacement due to the Mw = 6.3 L’Aquila (central Italy) earthquake. We identify two local deformation patterns associated with long-term gravitational mass movements, and interpret the deformation mechanisms by integrating geological analysis and simple analytical modeling. These subtle deformations, the role of which in landscape evolution and earthquake-induced hazard needs to be fully assessed, may only be identifi ed using high-resolution DInSAR.
