        Germany land motion mapped

        Paris (ESA) Nov 04, 2020
        Tiny shifts in the land surface across the whole of Germany have been mapped for the first time, with the help of the Copernicus Sentinel-1 radar mission. Land-surface deformation, such as subsidence, often happens because of changes that take place underground such as groundwater extraction, mining, natural consolidation of sediments and rapid urbanisation. This ground motion can be a major threat, in both urban and agricultural areas, where continuous shifts over time can cause, for exampl ... read more
