New EO-1 ALI satellite image of Attabad

Posted by Dave Petley

NASA have released a new satellite image of the Attabad landslide and lake, collected by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) instrument on the EO-1 satellite on Saturday 2nd July.  The images are excellent, showing both the lake and the dam and spillway with only limited cloud cover (note that north is to the right on these images):

The box indicates the following close-up image:

They also link to this site, which is appreciated.  Meanwhile, the NDMA site suggests that the lake level has dropped by about 3.5 inches (about 9 cm).
