We present in this work a first performance assessment of the Parallel Small BAseline Subset (P-SBAS) algorithm, for the generation of Differential Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Interferometry (DInSAR) deformation maps and time series, which has been migrated to a Cloud Computing (CC) environment. In particular, we investigate the scalable performances of the P-SBAS algorithm by processing a selected ENVISAT ASAR image time series, which we use as a benchmark, and by exploiting the Amazon Web… CONTINUE READING
