InSAR Image and Overlay

Caption: In farmland of the San Luis Valley, a sea of low-quality InSAR data, indicated by blue, is punctuated by spots of high-quality data, indicated by yellow and orange. By overlaying a Google Earth image of the same location on the InSAR data, Reeves determined that the high-quality data occur in the areas between center-pivot irrigation circles.
