Quake from space
The 25 April earthquake and the swarm of high-intensity aftershocks in the past month have made the mountains of Central Nepal highly unstable, and the approaching monsoon rains could trigger landslides and block rivers.
After the earthquake, Nepal must now be prepared for secondary disasters like rockfalls, slope failures, glacial lake outburst floods and avalanches. Early warning could save lives, but how can we monitor these dangers?
For Nepali Times, I reported on how using high-resolution satellite imagery could help the country assess hazards from landslides and save lives.
