Damage to the earths crust from the magnitude 6.4 and 7.1 earthquakes that struck Southern California last week is visible in a kaleidoscopic satellite image released by NASA.
The Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis team at NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena used satellite data to produce a map showing ruptures and displacements not visible to the naked eye employing technology that has been developed over the last quarter of a century. The imagery was acquired on July 8 and compared with data from April 8.
The earthquakes were the largest to hit California in nearly 20 years and were felt as far away as Phoenix and Mexicali, Mexico.

Interference patterns used to show geologic differences. Kewl!
Caused by climate change. Definitely Trumps fault.
There is a volcanic field there. Not the Long Valley Caldera, but another which name I cant remember.
Makes me wonder.
We all gotta go sometime.
California, you’re up!
Sometimes you gonna get higher
Sometimes you gotta start low
Some people think they gonna die someday
I got news you never got to go
We need to raise taxes so we can stop earthquakes from harming the crust!
I was gonna ask how you get an interferogram of the earth’s surface? Apparently, with before and after shots from an Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar.
I just heard from Congress WO-MAN Alexxandria Ocasio Cortes that she think we can spend money to put stitches in these cracks, to hold them at their present size!!!
Caused damage to earth’s crust??
What an asinine comment!
It’s earth’s crust itself doing its thing that caused the earthquakes!!
Absolutely the COOLEST SONG EVAH!!
Oh, heavens to Betsy! The crust has been damaged! It’s called a fault, you rubes. More tax dollars down the toilet.
This wouldn't have happened if Trump would have released his tax records as congress requested.
Those are not interference pattern. That is paint that seeped to the surface from vast reservoirs underground.
OMG !! all the CO2 will escape
