Deformation map associated with the 13/11/2016 seismic event in New Zealand

Shortly after the earthquake, the InSar group of the BEYOND Center of Excellence acquired Sentinel-1 data through the Hellenic National Sentinel Data Mirror Site, in order to calculate the interferograms that depict the ground deformation due to the earthquake.

The acquired datasets were four successive ascending Sentinel-1 Synthetic Aperture Radar images, two before (3/11/2016) the devastating earthquake, and two after (15/11/2016). The mapping unit of the BEYOND/NOA mosaicked the two SAR frames, so as to produce the full deformation picture.
