NASA Images Show Continuing Mexico Quake Deformation
August 10, 2010
 

Interferogram showing continued deformation in Earth's surface caused by the thousands of aftershocks from the magnitude 7.2 quake in Baja California on April 4.This interferogram of Southern California's Imperial Valley was created by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's UAVSAR synthetic aperture radar on NASA's Gulfstream III research aircraft by combining data from flights from the Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale on April 13 and July 1, 2010. The interferogram shows continued deformation in Earth's surface caused by the thousands of aftershocks from the magnitude 7.2 quake in Baja California on April 4. The different shades represent motions of the ground surface by a few inches, with yellow shaded regions moving south, regions in blue moving north, while regions shaded in magenta showed no motion. Recent aftershocks are denoted by yellow, orange and red dots, with older earthquakes shown as gray dots. (NASA / JPL / USGS / California Geological Survey / Google image)
