  author={Tomokazu Kobayashi},
  journal={Geoscience Letters},
By applying a pixel offset analysis using RADARSAT-2 SAR data to an inland crustal earthquake that occurred on Bohol Island, Philippines on 15 October 2013, we succeeded in mapping a ground displacement associated with the earthquake. The most concentrated crustal deformation with ground displacement exceeding 1 m is located in the northwest part of the island. The crustal deformation is zonally distributed and extends a length of approximately 50 km in the ENE–WSW direction. The ground in the… 

Coseismic Ground Rupture of the 15 October 2013 Magnitude (MW) 7.2 Bohol Earthquake, Bohol Island, Central Philippines

The 15 October 2013 magnitude (MW) 7.2 Bohol earthquake produced an ~50‐km‐long, ~12‐km‐wide northeast trending zone of uplift with an ~8‐km‐long discontinuous ground rupture indicating predominantly

Ground deformation analysis caused by post-2013 earthquake in Bohol, Philippines

After the 2013 Mw 7.2 earthquake that occurred in Bohol, the shoreline specifically in Loon and Maribojoc was observed to shift seaward due to ground uplift. This study analyzes the post-earthquake


Abstract. Coupled with the occurrence of regional/local sea level rise on urbanized coastal cities is the possibility of land subsidence that contaminates the measurement by the tide gauge (TG)
