Transcript

  • 1. Earthquake Prediction from Space Stuart Eves – SSTL with thanks to:- Mino and Friedemann Freund - NASA s.eves@sstl.co.uk March 2008
  • 2. Disaster Monitoring vs Disaster Mitigation • SSTL has worked with nations around the globe to build the Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC) • Ideally, though, SSTL and NASA would like to provide warning using space-based sensors before disasters strike • For earthquakes, mitigation may now be possible
  • 3. Seismic Signals • Movements in the Earth’s crust can be detected by interferometric radar • In general, however, it’s much easier to see the effects of earthquakes after they happen Interferogram of the Bay of Naples area, showing volcanic changes in the topography around Vesuvius ERS
