of the source geometry associated with volcanic, seismic, and other processes that are manifested by surface deformation.
—Interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) is a powerful technique that precisely measures surface deformations at a fine spatial resolution over a large area. However, the accuracy of this technique is sometimes compromised by ionospheric path delays on radar signals, particularly with Land P-band SAR systems. To avoid ionospheric effects from being… (More)
This paper presents the categorization and restoration of defective lines developed in pushbroom images. About 100 of the 3000 SPOT 4 SWIR detectors malfunction, which degrades image quality. Conventional methods have difficulties in effectively detecting and restoring defective lines, because they ignore the heterogeneity of the ground surface and the… (More)
Multiple-aperture SAR interferometry (MAI) has demonstrated outstanding measurement accuracy of along-track displacement when compared to pixel-offset-tracking methods; however, measuring slow-moving (cm/year) surface displacement remains a challenge. Stacking of multi-temporal observations is a potential approach to reducing noise and increasing… (More)
a r t i c l e i n f o We generated a time-series of ERS-1/2 and ENVISAT interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) images to study ground surface deformation at Seguam Island from 1992 to 2008. We used the small baseline subset (SBAS) technique to reduce artifacts associated with baseline uncertainties and atmospheric delay anomalies, and processed… (More)
