Mount Everest has shorten after Nepal earthquake

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Mt Everest

Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain, has shrunk about 1 inch by following the massive earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25.

Satellite data from the European Space Agency showed that the mountain subsided, making it about an inch shorter than it was before.

Researchers spotted the changes, including the rise of Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu by approximately 3ft. The shift was detected by comparing before-and-after radar images using a technique that produces an image called an interferogram.
