About this book

At 14:28hrs on May 12 2008 a very powerful earthquake hit Wenchuan, Sichuan Province, China, inflicting great loss of human life and property and setting back social and economic development in the earthquake-hit zone. An emergency survey by means of space remote sensing was initiated by China's Geological Survey of the Ministry of Land & Resources. It involved remote sensing experts from all over the country and utilized multinational space remote sensing data of different types (radar and optics) and different resolutions (meter-scale or sub-meter scale).

This Atlas records post-earthquake geological conditions in Wenchuan and contains the results of the remote sensing survey.
