Topic - Ojos del Salado now higher than Aconcagua?

almost sane - on 01 Apr 2011
Some friends of mine work on satellite survey data for an oil exploration company, but they like to look at mountains in their spare time (even if it isn't exactly their spare time, I suspect you know what I mean).

Anyways, preliminary data from south America after the recent spate of earth movements round the Ring of Fire is that Ojos del Salado has risen and Aconcagua has sunk slightly, so it looks like Salado will be the new seven summit peak for South America.

Thing is, my mates daren't let on what they have found, as strictly speaking they shouldn't have been doing it. So is anyone in a position to confirm or deny this? I know some folks out there have access to satellite survey data, or contacts with the various geological services.
