UAVSAR – Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar

Thursday, September 3, 2015

UAVSAR onboard the Armstrong Gulfstream III jet was featured in the September issue of Air and Space Smithsonian in an article entitled, “Disaster Prevention in A Gulfstream — earthquakes, volcanoes, mudslides: airborne radar watches all the ways the earth moves.”  This article (see attached) was written by science journalist Alex Witze based on interviews she conducted last year with UAVSAR science investigators Bruce Chapman, Andrea Donnellan, Cathleen Jones, Eric Fielding, and Paul Lundgren.  The article highlighted research done with UAVSAR data on the San Andreas Fault movements, aging levees in California’s Sacramento Delta area, volcano activities in South America, slow-motion landslide in Slumgullion, Colorado, and forest inundation in the Amazon forest.
