Satellite image of New Zealand earthquake

The map shows the different amounts that Earth has moved as a result of the Magnitude 6.3 tremor that left more than 160 people dead.The image was created by the Japanese Alos spacecraft which is being used to survey the damage. It clearly shows that the worst of the damage was the south-eastern suburbs of the capital Christchurch - there the lines are closest together meaning the tremor came closest to breaking through the surface. The closer together the lines are on this image, the higher the ground has pushed towards the surface.
