Caption: Nepal earthquake deformation, 2015. Satellite radar interferogram showing the ground deformation that occurred around Kathmandu, Nepal (right), following the earthquake of 25 April 2015. The interferogram is generated from two Sentinel-1A scans obtained on 17 and 29 April 2015, before and after the earthquake. Each 'fringe' of colour represents about 3 centimetres of deformation. The large amount of fringes indicates a large deformation pattern with ground motions of 1 metre or more. Sentinel-1A is a European radar imaging satellite launched in 2014. The Nepal earthquake, with a moment magnitude of 7.8, killed more than 7000 people.
