New results from Envisat 2010+:
Since 27 October 2010, the European Space Agency (ESA) Envisat satellite has been in a new orbit, called the "2010+" phase of the Envisat mission. The new orbit repeats a given track every 30 days, allowing interferograms to be formed with 30-day intervals. They have imaged the San Francisco Bay twice in the new orbit, allowing us to create these two interferograms. The Envisat original data is copyright 2010 ESA, and was provided under the AOE-668 project.
