many scales and in many radiation bands can reveal or clarify geomorphic and geologic relations otherwise unavailable. Side-looking radar, which permits illumination of the landscape from angles impossible by natural sunlight, can enhance selected geomorphic and tectonic trends. New, sophisticated technology, such as used in the airborne profiling of terrain (APT) system, may provide previously unobtainable data on geodetic and geophysical changes that are a direct reflection of active tectonics.
