ESA Satellites keep an eye on Dutch dikes

In the Netherlands, local authorities are looking to satellite observations as a promising option for dike monitoring and to protect against dike failures. In a recently completed Terrafirma study, the IJsselmeer dikes were checked using radar data from ESA's Envisat satellite for the period 2003–10.

New data shows El Mayor–Cucapah earthquake was simple on surface, complicated at depth

Like scars that remain on the skin long after a wound has healed, earthquake fault lines can be traced on Earth's surface long after their initial rupture. Typically, this line of intersection between the area where the fault slips and the ground is more complicated at the surface than at depth. But a new study of the April 4, 2010, El Mayor–Cucapah earthquake in Mexico reveals a reversal of this trend. While the fault involved in the event appeared to be superficially straight, the fault zone is warped and complicated at depth.
