Earthquake off the coast of Sumatra Island occurred on December 26, 2004 and caused serious damages not only by the physical vibration but also by Tsunami induced by the earthquake. In such an event, it is requested to collect all the available information within minimal time frame. In this particular case, the observation by ASTER was programmed with the highest priority. As a result, ASTER data was acquired 12 times in a month over damaged areas. Within them, there were two good scenes over Bandah Aceh, Indonesia and they are compared with J-ERS1 and Landsat ETM+ data acquired before the Earthquake, and damaged areas were clearly identified. Synergism with other remote sensors such as IKONOS, Quick Bird, and, in near future, PALSAR data will strengthen the monitoring capability.
