Context and objectives
To use ERS-1 SAR data to localise active faults in the Pastaza basin in view of the construction of hydroelectric dams.
Expected scientific results
Using ERS-1 SAR images is until now the only way to realise a regional complete cartography of the lineaments and after in situ surveys, active faults of this not well known area of Ecuador.
The results of this study will surely help to determine the best site for the dam that has been proposed.
