Satellite remote sensing of earthquake, volcano, flood, landslide and coastal inundation hazards
Satellite remote sensing is providing a systematic, synoptic framework for advancing scientific knowledge of the Earth as a complex system of geophysical phenomena that, directly and throughExpand
Geomorphic and geologic controls of geohazards induced by Nepal’s 2015 Gorkha earthquake
Satellite imaging isolated hazard potential for earthquake-triggered landslides after the 2015 Gorkha earthquake in Nepal and provided information to relief and recovery officials as emergency operations were occurring, while supported by one of the largest-ever NASA-led campaigns of responsive satellite data acquisitions over a vast disaster zone.

GPS observations of fault afterslip and upper crustal deformation following the Northridge earthquake
Global Positioning System (GPS) observations indicate that significant aseismic deformation occurred in the year following the January 17, 1994, Northridge earthquake. The postseismic observationsExpand
The future Global Geodetic Observing System
In this Chapter, we focus on the design of the geodetic observing system that will meet the specifications summarized in Section 7.7 and be able to sustain the products listed in Section 7.5. Thus,Expand
Shortening and thickening of metropolitan Los Angeles measured and inferred by using geodesy
Geodetic observations using the Global Positioning System (GPS) and other techniques record a high rate of north-south shortening in an east-southeast–trending, 5–40-km-wide belt in northernExpand
The 2012 Brawley swarm triggered by injection-induced aseismic slip
It has long been known that fluid injection or withdrawal can induce earthquakes, but the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. For example, the 2012 Brawley swarm, which produced two strike-slipExpand
Discrepancy between geological and geodetic deformation rates in the Ventura basin
SPACE geodesy provides a new tool for measuring neotectonic deformation which, when combined with geological and geophysical observations and models, can be used to infer rates and styles ofExpand
Geodetic measurement of deformation in the Ventura basin region
We have measured the deformation in the Ventura basin region, southern California, with Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements carried out over 4.6 years between 1987 and 1992. The deformationExpand
Influence of anelastic surface layers on postseismic thrust fault deformation
We present the results of a systematic modeling study of postseismic deformation following blind thrust earthquakes. The results include qualitative and quantitative predictions of the surfaceExpand
Reconciling rapid strain accumulation with deep seismogenic fault planes in the Ventura Basin, California
Global Positioning System measurements across the east central Ventura basin, Transverse Ranges, southern California, before the nearby 1994 Northridge earthquake show high strain rates. InterpretingExpand
