GEODETIC data, obtained by ground- or space-based techniques, can be used to infer the distribution of slip on a fault that has ruptured in an earthquake. Although most geodetic techniques require a surveyed network to be in place before the earthquake1–3, satellite images, when collected at regular intervals, can capture co-seismic displacements without advance knowledge of the earthquake's location. Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry, first introduced4 in 1974 for topographic… 
Radar interferometric mapping of deformation in the year after the Landers earthquake
ALTHOUGH the 1992 Landers, California, earthquake sequence occurred in an area well sampled by geodetic networks1–3, the postseismic deformation in the months following the earthquake has been

We describe a procedure to compute SAR interferograms based on the compensation of the images' mis‐registrations due to the ground deformation and on a specific adaptive filtering to improve the SNR
Deformation due to the 17 August 1999 Izmit, Turkey, earthquake measured from SPOT images
The geometry of the ruptured areas and the coseismic slip distribution data are key to highlighting the behavior of seismic faults. This information is generally retrieved from field investigations

Preliminary Study to Detect Crustal Deformation by RADARSAT SAR Interferometry: Crustal Deformation Associated with the Western Tottori Prefecture Earthquake in 2000@@@2000年鳥取県西部地震の地殻変動
The coseismic displacement field on the Earth's surface associated with the Western Tottori Prefecture Earthquake (October 6, 2000) was mapped by spaceborne C-band SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar)
Crustal deformation associated with the northern Miyagi earthquake detected by RADARSAT-1 and ENVISAT SAR interferometry
We applied synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry to map the deformation field of the northern Miyagi earthquake (M6.4) which occurred on July 26, 2003. RADARSAT-1 and ENVISAT satellite data

The correlation technique is now able to provide a local displacement measure with a precision of a hundredth of a pixel, and the complementarity of this measurement with the radar interferometric measurement is discussed in the paper.

Detection of crustal deformation from the Landers earthquake sequence using continuous geodetic measurements
THE measurement of crustal motions in technically active regions is being performed increasingly by the satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS)1,2, which offers considerable advantages over
Absolute far-field displacements from the 28 June 1992 Landers earthquake sequence
ON 28 June 1992, the largest earthquake in California in 40 years (surface-wave magnitude M s = 7.5) occurred near the small town of Landers, in southeastern California, and was followed three hours
Coseismic displacements: 1992 Landers, California, Earthquake
The rupture associated with the 1992 Landers earthquake (Ms = 7.5) extended along the west edge of a 60 × 50 km trilateration network that had been surveyed two months before the earthquake and was
Topographic mapping from interferometric synthetic aperture radar observations
Interferometric synthetic aperture radar observations provide a means for obtaining high-resolution topographic terrain maps from data acquired simultaneously at two slightly displaced antennas.
Mapping small elevation changes over large areas: Differential radar interferometry
A technique that uses synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images to measure very small (1 cm or less) surface motions with good resolution (10 m) over large swaths (50 km) is presented along with

The focusing of synthetic-aperture-radar (SAR) data using migration techniques quite similar to those used in geophysics is treated. The algorithm presented works in the omega -k/sub x/ domain.
Near-Field Investigations of the Landers Earthquake Sequence, April to July 1992
Large surficial offsets and a relatively short rupture length are consistent with seismological calculations of a high stress drop, which is in turn consistent with an apparently long recurrence interval for these faults.
Seismicity Remotely Triggered by the Magnitude 7.3 Landers, California, Earthquake
The most promising explanations involve nonlinear interactions between large dynamic strains accompanying seismic waves from the mainshock and crustal fluids (perhaps including crustal magma).
Initial investigation of the Landers, California, Earthquake of 28 June 1992 using TERRAscope
The 1992 Landers earthquake (M_s =7.5, M_w =7.3) was recorded at six TERRAscope stations in southern California. Peak accelerations ranged from 0.16 g at SVD (Δ=63 km) to 0.0092 g at ISA (Δ=245 km),
Decorrelation in interferometric radar echoes
It is found that there is decorrelation increasing with time but that digital terrain model generation remains feasible and such a technique could provide a global digital terrain map.
