1 2 A radar interferometric technique for topographic mapping of surfaces promises a high resolution approach to generation of digital elevation models. We present here analyses of data collected by the synthetic aperture radar instrument on board the ERS-1 satellite on successive orbits. Using a single satellite in a nearly repeating orbit is attractive(More)
Our understanding of the earthquake process requires detailed insights into how the tectonic stresses are accumulated and released on seismogenic faults. We derive the full vector displacement field due to the Bam, Iran, earthquake of moment magnitude 6.5 using radar data from the Envisat satellite of the European Space Agency. Analysis of surface(More)
[1] We use seismic and geodetic data both jointly and separately to constrain coseismic slip from the 12 November 1996 M w 7.7 and 23 June 2001 M w 8.5 southern Peru subduction zone earthquakes, as well as two large aftershocks following the 2001 earthquake on 26 June and 7 July 2001. We use all available data in our inversions: GPS, interferometric(More)
Interactive visualization of architecture provides a way to quickly visualize existing or novel buildings and structures. Such applications require both fast rendering and an effortless input regimen for creating and changing architecture using high-level editing operations that automatically fill in the necessary details. Procedural modeling and synthesis(More)
Until recently the coarse resolution of topographic mapping acted as a break on understanding the forces and processes that shape the Earth's surface. However, active surface deformation is an important indicator for the earth crustal dynamics since it is directly linked to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and landslides. Both airborne laser scanning systems(More)
It's estimated that as much as 65% of the population are visual learners. To those many, visualization represents a critical step in formulating their understanding of data. However, there are numerous technical and human factor challenges that make visualization of large, complex data nontrivial. In this talk I will discuss how I, along with my(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)
