Short summary
This paper calculates the coseismic displacement produced during the 16 April 2016 Mw 7.0 Kumamoto earthquake from a pair of digital surface models (DSMs), acquired before and after the earthquake from airborne lidar data. A window matching search approach based on the correlation coefficient was used for this purpose. Results are consistent with the coseismic displacement estimated from strong-motion acceleration records and with the surveyed surface rupture.
