Largest Earthquake, 20 May 2012 2:03 UTC, Latitude 44.92°N,Longitude 11.33°E, 6.0, Depth 11.33 km (USGS).
Most deadly Earthquake, 29 May 2012 7:00 UTC, Latitude 44.813°N,Longitude 11.078°E, 5.8, Depth 11.08 km (USGS).

The CEOS Supersite Coordination Team in collaboration with INGV is investigating what resources will be made available. If you have data or results that you would like to post on this webpage, please e-mail Falk Amelung, the Task Leader of GEO's Supersite initiative (famelung@rsmas.miami.edu) or Susanna Gross (supersites@unavco.org). If appropriate, a KMZ file is convenient to use in the field.



The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre has prepared this map of the aftershocks, mainshock focal mechanisms and nearby sequences.

SAR Data

Radarsat:



Alessandro Ferretti of TRE (http://www.treuropa.com/) sent the above interferogram figures made using Radarsat-1 for the Emiliana Po Plain earthquakes. Interferograms show deformation from both the May 20 and the May 29 earthquakes.

COSMO-SkyMed:


COSMO-SkyMed ground displacement map in the radar line of sight, derived from data acquired on 29/05/2012 and 04/06/2012 (perpendicular baseline about 300 m) along descending orbits. The image shows mainly an uplift (incidence angle is about 30 deg): areas in red are those affected by the maximum deformation which is about 12 cm. The processing has been carried out by the Italian National Research Council (CNR-IREA) of Napoli (Italy) under request of the Italian Civil Protection Department. Data were provided by the Italian Space Agency (ASI).


Co-seismic COSMO-SkyMed (CSK) wrapped interferogram showing displacements in the radar line-of-sight (along the descending orbit) due to the Emilia 2012/05/20 earthquake. Derived from CSK scenes acquired on 2011/05/19 and 2012/05/23 provided by ASI. Processed at the Remote Sensing-Laboratory, INGV-Rome for the Italian Civil Protection, under the ASI-INGV SIGRIS joint agreement. For an unwrapped version of this interferogram, please see this PDF.


COSMO-SkyMed interferogram showing coseismic displacement due to the Emilia magnitude 5.8 2012/05/29 earthquake. The interferogram was generated using two images acquired from a descending orbit on 2012/05/27 and 2012/06/04 provided by ASI. Each fringe shows about 1.5 cm of displacement in the sensor line of sight. Processed at the Remote Sensing-Laboratory, INGV-Rome for the Italian Civil Protection, under the ASI-INGV SIGRIS joint agreement.


The figure shows the interferometric displacement map due to the 29/05/2012 earthquake in the Emilia area, processed at the Remote Sensing Laboratory of INGV-Rome for the Italian Civil Protection, under the ASI-INGV SIGRIS joint agreement. Produced from COSMO-SkyMed data provided by ASI spanning 2012/05/27 - 2012/06/04 along the descending track. The maximum displacement reaches about 11 cm.


COSMO-SkyMed ground displacement map in the radar line of sight, derived from data acquired on 19/05/2012 and 23/05/2012 (perpendicular baseline about 350 m) along descending orbits. The image shows mainly an uplift (incidence angle is about 27 deg): areas in red are those affected by the maximum deformation which is about 15 cm. The processing has been carried out by the Italian National Research Council (CNR-IREA) of Napoli (Italy) under request of the Italian Civil Protection Department. Data were provided by the Italian Space Agency (ASI).
