East Africa: Remote Sensing satellites help monitor tectonic plates

Tiny changes on the ground changes the radar signal

The use of remote sensing techniques such as the Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) are helping scientists to better understand plate tectonics by providing patterns and consequences of activity that can help to get a clearer picture of a
