NASA Conducts Airborne Study of Colorado Landslide. The red outline in this false-color UAVSAR radar image, overlaid on a Google Earth image from the USDA Farm Service Agency, is the active part of the Slumgullion landslide in southwestern Colorado as mapped by the U.S. Geological Survey. The pink, purple and yellow shades show the most rapidly moving part of the landslide. The yellow area within the slide moved about 9 centimeters, or 3.5 inches, during the seven-day interval between flights in August 2011. (NASA image)
