In addition to the GSNL general objectives, the China earthquake Supersite has 5 specific objectives:
1 - Acquire SAR and VHR optical imagery for all significant earthquakes occurring in the Supersite area, to study the co-seismic and postseismic deformation processes, including surface faulting.
2 - Acquire 6-day Sentinel-1 imagery of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake region in order to better resolve post-seismic deformation and understand how it affects nearby faults. This objective will support the newly established China Seismic Experimental Site (CSES).
3 - Acquire high-resolution Cosmo-Skymed imagery of a section of the Haiyuan fault to study the interseismic deformation and aseismic creep.
4 - Acquire 6-day Sentinel-1 imagery at the CSES sites to map the interseismic deformation. Develop a high resolution structural model for the active faults by joint analysis of InSAR with in-situ observations.
5 - Advance data sharing in China (GNSS, Seismic, InSAR). Promote international collaboration and participation of China in the GSNL initiative.
