The picture shows the cover page of Nature, Vol 364, 8 July 1993 Issue no. 6433. It shows the surface displacement associated with the June 1992 magnitude 7.3 earthquake in Landers, seen by interferometric processing of two images from the ERS-1 satellite. One full colour cycle in the interferometric fringes represent a change of 28 mm in the ground-to-satellite range between pre- and post-earthquake images. Solid lines show the surface rupture as mapped in the field.
The image comes from a paper called 'The displacement field of the Landers earthquake mapped by radar interferometry' with authors Didier Massonnet, Marc Rossi, Cesar Carmona, Frederic Adragna (CNES), Gilles Pletzner (Observatoire Midi-Pyrenees) and Kurt Feigl (Scot Conseil) and published on pages 138 - 142.
