New Nepal interferogram from the Alaska Satellite Facility DAAC Ground deformation caused by the April 25 Nepal earthquake is clearly visible in this new interferogram processed from Sentinel-1A data by the ASF DAAC. The image uses synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data from April 17 and April 29. Each colored fringe indicates about 8.5 cm of surface motion, with ground motion exceeding 1.4 m in areas north of Kathmandu.
