InSAR slip rate determination on the Altyn Tagh Fault, northern Tibet, in the presence of topographically correlated atmospheric delays

Abstract:

The interseismic strain across the Altyn Tagh Fault at 85°E has been measured using 59 interferograms from 26 ERS-1/2 SAR acquisitions on a single track for the period 1993-2000. Using an atmospheric delay correction that scales linearly with height, we estimate the left-lateral strike-slip motion to be 11 ±1σ 5 mm/yr, assuming no relative vertical motion and a 15 km fault locking depth. This is in agreement with sparse GPS measurements. The atmospheric delay corrections agree well with coars...
