Deliver and report on the results of the period Q3 2018-Q4 2019, including report on the newly-reached geoscience centers and end users supported by the Demonstrator.
Update September 2019.
New users (University of Oxford (UK) and IPGP (France)) expressed interest to participate in the Demonstrator. First results with Pleiades data provided to University of Leeds will be presented at the 12th CEOS WG Disasters: 1) over Central Asia, to address the UN sustainable cities and communities global challenge by improving our understanding of earthquake hazard for three major cities along the northern Tien Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan that have been struck by huge earthquakes in the past; 2) over Palu, to assess the potential of Pleiades for deriving the Palu fault rupture offsets through both the urban city and rural environment.
Work is on going (EO products to be made available within 2019) with Pleiades data provided to University of Leeds for Ecuador and Nepal, to support the GSRF Hubs, aiming to derive models of multi-hazard risk to inform urban development planning.
Results on mapping the faults of 2019 California earthquakes jointly using the Copernicus Sentinel-1 & 2 data by the Corinth Rift Laboratory (supported by the CEOS GLab, as part of the results were generated using SNAP toolbox and DIAPASON service on GEP) were published here: https://eo4society.esa.int/2019/07/30/mapping-the-faults-of-2019-california-earthquakes-with-sentinel-1-2/.
Work is on-going with Pleiades data provided over Almaty (Kazakhstan) to support the GSRF Hubs, aiming to derive models of multi-hazard risk to inform urban development planning.
University of Oxford is studying and reinterpretating the major early-mid 20th century earthquakes in central Asia. Currently, their work with Pleiades data is focusing on Dushanbe (Tajikistan).
Also, there is an on-going study over Tehran performed by University of Tehran mapping in terseismic strain accumulation using CosmoSkyMed data.
