Chongqing landslide – NASA satellite image

Posted by Dave Petley

NASA have provided the first decent overview of the Chongqing landslide via a high resolution satellite image. This can be found here.

The morphology of this is decidedly odd – I will spend some time trying understand it better. According to the NASA page the source is to the north and the landslide has moved southwards and then spread out to the southwest.

Meanwhile, the search for victims continues according to Xinhua.
