—We investigate the capability improvement of the advanced differential interferometric synthetic aperture radar (DInSAR) techniques to map deformation phenomena affecting urban areas by exploiting multitemporal SAR data acquired by the new X-band sensors with respect to those of the previous C-band systems. In particular, we perform a comparative analysis(More)
In recent years, a second generation of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite sensor has been designed and, partially, put into operation, leading to an important breakthrough in Earth Science studies. The common characteristics of such new systems are, indeed, a reduced revisit time (as short as a few days) and, in most cases, an improved spatial(More)
—Reclaimed lands are seriously affected by ground settlement episodes, which are primarily caused by unconsolidated soils, and could result in severe damage to buildings and public infrastructures. In this work, we present a differential synthetic aperture radar (DInSAR) analysis of the ground displacement that impacts the ocean-reclaimed areas of the(More)
Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) is a remote sensing technique that exploits the phase difference between SAR image pairs acquired at different times to detect the relative displacement (projected along the sensor line of sight (LOS)) between acquisitions [1]. InSAR facilitates analysis of the temporal evolution of the surface deformation(More)
