IGG got coseismic interferogram of Perugia earthquake by using InSAR data of Sentinel-1A satellite TEXT SIZE:A A A

According to the China Earthquake Networks Center, a massive earthquake with a magnitude of 6.2 struck Perugia in Italy on August 24th, 2016 at 9:36 a.m. (Beijing Time), with a depth of 10 kilometers.

IGG used radar data(C-band) provided by the European Space Agency(ESA) Sentinel-1A Satellite to get the coseismic deformation field in LOS(Line-Of-Sight) direction. According to the result, the largest coseismic deformation is about 0.2m(LOS: Line-Of-Sight). This large extension, high resolution deformation field data could make sense to disaster relief work.
