Land subsidence maps for Arizona updated

The Arizona Dept. of Water Resources has updated land subsidence maps for the state on ADWR's website and can be accessed from the main land subsidence webpage at this link:   

Program manager Brian Conway reports that in 2016, ADWR collected InSAR data over more than 42,000 square miles, continuing the monitoring of more than twenty-five individual land subsidence features covering an area of approximately 3,400 square miles.  The InSAR data was used to create 51 new land subsidence maps through May 2016.  There are now a total of 365 maps available for download that cover various periods of time for each land subsidence feature.

The map above shows the basins being monitored (in yellow).
