I find it remarkable that we can measure these small amounts of movement from a satellite hundreds of miles away, I know this is of little comfort to the people that live on this island. the other thing is are they getting any foreign aid from other countries??

Been near there, beautiful place. Feel for the people. Their tourism is maybe finished for years.

The tsunami/earthquake in Tohoku dropped the whole coastline (300 kilometers or so) 120cm.

A lot of the reconstruction has been getting the land datum back above sea evel and rebuliding the dykes to their previous height,

As for accurate measurements. the volcano, Mt Zao bulged 7cm in one place and it was detected and an alert issued.

Truely remarkable.
