The Kahramanmaraş Supersite is strongly supported by the Space Agencies participating to the CEOS Working Group on Disasters:
The following EO data are available for scientific use.
COSMO-SkyMed stripmap images
ASI post-seismic interferometric acquisition plan for COSMO-SkyMed satellites (repeat pass:16 or 24 days):
The CSK-CSG data are distributed through the Geohazard Exploitation Platform- GEP, under the folder Turkey EQ 2023
You can freely browse through the archive, but to be able to download the data, you have to follow the procedure described here
Note that before the event there were only a limited number of frames acquired over the area.
SAOCOM stripmap images
ASI interferometric acquisition plan for SAOCOM:
The SAOCOM data are distributed through the ASI SAOCOM data hub., but can be browsed also from the CONAE catalog.
To be allowed to browse and download the data from the ASI SAOCOM data hub, you need to register your membership (join the license to use the data). To do this you should go to https://www.asi.it/en/earth-science/saocom/ and follow the procedure explained in the Membership guide.
If you find the guide too dispersive, read below for a quick way to register (please have patience and read to the end...):
- Download the Membership registration form EXCEL file, from the ASI website.
- Fill the form, listing only users from the same institution, and describing the project for which you intend to use the data. Add CEOS-GSNL at the end of the Title field for a faster processing. This document does not need to be signed.
- Download the SAOCOM Release of Liability Declaration file, from the ASI website.
- Fill the form with user names, institution details and project title, then have the legally responsible person (President or Director) of your institution sign the document.
IMPORTANT information about the responsible signature:
Please be aware that the submission procedure may depend on your country, since ASI requires in principle that the signature under the Release of Liability Declaration is provided in digital form, according to the eIDAS (electronic IDentification Authentication and Signature) Regulation EU No. 910/2014.
If your institution has access to the eIDAS system (as in all of Europe), once you have the document digitally signed, you must send both files by email, to: SAOCOM_UserMng@asi.it (see more below on the email subject and text).
If your institution is located outside of Europe, or if your institution does not use a digital signature service compliant with eIDAS (e.g., DOCUSIGN in the USA), you MUST send the two signed paper documents by post, to Patrizia Sacco, CGS (Space Geodesy Center) "G.Colombo" -C/da Terlecchia - c.p. 11 -75100 Matera – ITALY. It is wise to anticipate the douments by email, but the actual registration will occur only after the paper copies have been received.
Finally, when sending the documents (digitally signed or not), it is mandatory that the email, or letter, subject be SAOCOM Membership Request, and that in the email/letter body you place also the following statements:
If you have problems with the above procedure we will try to help: email@example.com
