Observations of Deformation
|Region:||Africa and Red Sea|
|Duration of observation:||October 1997 - September 2000, 2003 - 2010|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Between 1997 – 2000 one ERS interferogram measured 3 cm of subsidence (Biggs et al 2009). This signal was modelled as a penny shaped crack source geometry, with diameter of 5.5 km at a depth of 1.5 km.
