Abstract

On September 19, 2017, the Mw7.1 Puebla Earthquake caused significant destruction in several cities in central Mexico. In this paper, two pre- and one post-event ALOS2-PALSAR2 data were used to detect the damaged area around Izucar de Matamoros town in Mexico. First, we identify the built-up areas using pre-event data. Second, we evaluate the earthquake-induced damage areas using an RGB color-coded image constructed from the pre- and co-event coherence images. Our analysis showed that the green and red bands display a great potential to discriminate the damaged areas.
