Co-seismic interferograms of Western Afghanistan earthquake, October 7, 2023
An M6.2 earthquake occurred in Western Afghanistan in October 7, 2023, 06:41:07 UTC. The geObservatory service of the Operational Unit BEYOND Center for Earth Observation Research and Satellite Remote Sensing of the Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing of the National Observatory of Athens, was activated by the earthquake and mapped co-seismic deformation. Co-seismic interferograms of ascending and descending satellite passes were automatically produced. In the co-seismic interferograms, fringes present the surface deformation in the line of sight direction, induced by the earthquake. Each fringe, corresponds to a ground deformation equal to 2.8 cm. All co-seismic and pre-seismic interferograms, associated with the event will be freely available in the geObsevatory website (http://geobservatory.beyond-eocenter.eu/), which will be continuously updated, as soon as new Sentinel-1 images become available.
