Abstract

We temporally observed the damage situation of Iwate-Miyagi Nairiku Earthquake in 2008. This earthquake caused landslides in the mountain area. Rivers were blocked by landslides and made dammed lakes. It has been about two years since the earthquake occurred. In the damaged areas, restoration work has been done. In this study, we observed the change situation of damage after the earthquake and restoration work. Comparing Pan-sharpen images before the earthquake with those immediately after and two years after the earthquake, we could clearly observe the damage situation and change of restoration work.
