The SPINUA (Stable Point INterferometry over Unurbanised Areas) processing chain has been developed and tested in the framework of ASI-, ESAand EUfunded projects, and represents an effort to adapt and optimise the general approach of long-term SAR interferometry for the study of un-urbanised areas such as those typical of Mediterranean sites affected by(More)
Image alignment is a crucial step in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry. Interferogram formation requires images to be coregistered with an accuracy of better than a few tenths of a resolution cell to avoid significant loss of phase coherence. In conventional interferometric precise coregistration methods for full-resolution SAR data, a 2-D(More)
In the present paper, COSMO-SkyMed high-resolution data acquired on the southern Basilicata region (Italy) are used for flood hazard monitoring. We concentrate on the flood event of Nov. 2-4, 2010, for which multi-temporal SAR data were available over the Bradano River downstream area in the same acquisition geometry, which allows interferometric(More)
This work experiments the potentialities of COSMO/SkyMed (CSK) data in providing interferometric Digital Elevation Model (DEM). We processed a stack of CSK data for measuring with meter accuracy the ground elevation on the available coherent targets, and used these values to check the accuracy of DEMs derived from 5 tandem-like CSK pairs. In order to(More)
By mapping the concentration of chlorophyll-a (CHL) and the temperature of the sea surface (SST), satellite images reveal the complex dynamics of marine waters and prove to be a very powerful tool when used to detect potential fishing areas, significantly reducing the time of the search, the fuel consumption and the human effort, and simultaneously(More)
