Large, slow moving landslides in the Berkeley Hills cause costly damage and pose a potential threat to public safety due to the close proximity of the Hayward Fault. Now in the Berkeley Hills there are four large, slow moving, deep-seated landslides. All the landslides extend through residential areas and move on the order of cm/year, each covering an area(More)
Spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) interferometry is a powerful tool for measuring ground movements by exploiting phase difference of SAR images taken at different time. It has been successfully used in studying earth processes such as volcano deformation, tectonic deformation, and land subsidence but rarely applied in landslides. In this paper we(More)
We evaluate the potential of troposphere models derived from ground meteorological data (pressure, temperature, and relative humidity) and Global Positioning System (GPS) data to improve InSAR measurements and models derived from them. We test this approach on an ERS-2/Envisat data set collected during a transient surface deformation episode that occurred(More)
