The JPL QUAKES team is conducting the first flight test of the QUAKES-I instrument over Southern California. The flight plan covers the highest and lowest points in California, earthquake faults in the state’s interior and some coastal zones. The visible imagery collected by the instrument will be processed into a geo-rectified 3D terrain map and point cloud for use in understanding plate tectonics and other surface phenomenon.
