Earthquakes occur very often worldwide, especially in volcanic regions like Hawaii. They can be caused by tectonic faults, by the movement of magma in volcanoes (volcano tectonic earthquakes) and be related to dike intrusion.

On 4 May 2018, an earthquake triggered by the eruption of Kilauea Volcano the day before struck the south-east of the Hawaii archipelago. This  earthquake of magnitude of Mw 6.9 produced around 5 meters of fault slip and was the largest one affecting this region since 1975.

During this webinar, we will employ the RUS environment to analyse this earthquake and more generally to study this type of events. We will use Sentinel-1 SLC products to derive the deformation caused and combine it with geological data. In addition, we will show how to access the RUS Service and to download, process, analyse and visualize the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites.

You can replay this webinar through our RUS Copernicus Training channel available on Youtube.

You can also retrieve the corresponding training support in the Train with RUS section of the RUS portal.
