Faults in Xinjiang

    To continue the lecture about geological phenomena, I had chosen this image with faults in Xinjiang (Northern part of China). From this great picture we have a sense of application of remote sensing to the geological study. On this image the rocks have various colors due to formation in different times. This place have a really long geological history, and this article describes the process of forming the faults.  Sebastian Turner, a geologist, used the satellite images to conduct his research on the faults ( ).
