Spaceborne Radar Interferometry for Landslide Monitoring

Multipass Differential Interferometry Synthetic Aperture Radar (DInSAR) is gaining an increasing importance for ground deformation monitoring. Compared to classical geodetic techniques such as

New Perspectives in Landslide Displacement Detection Using Sentinel-1 Datasets

This study demonstrates how the C-band data collected since 2014 by the Sentinel-1 (S1) mission and properly designed interferometric approaches can pull down this restriction allowing to measure rate of displacements ten times higher than previously done, thus providing new perspectives in landslides detection.

Landslide monitoring by corner reflectors differential interferometry SAR

Although the differential interferometric synthetic aperture radar (DInSAR) technique has the potential for monitoring ground deformation with millimetric accuracy, it still suffers from temporal and

High resolution satellite SAR multi-temporal interferometry for regional scale detection of landslide and subsidence hazards

Among a number of advanced satellite-based remote sensing techniques, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) multi-temporal interferometry (MTI) appears the most promising for fostering new opportunities in

Pre-survey suitability evaluation of the differential synthetic aperture radar interferometry method for landslide monitoring

A geographical information system (GIS) procedure is presented to accurately predict the areas in which layover and shadowing will occur, before the area of interest is recorded by radar.

During recent years, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry (InSAR) has become an important tool for precise measurements of the earth’s surface topography and deformation. This paper presents

Suitability Assessment of X-Band Satellite SAR Data for Geotechnical Monitoring of Site Scale Slow Moving Landslides

It is determined that Sentinel-2 satellite optical images are suited for performing high resolution land cover classifications, which results in the achievement of qualitative visibility maps and A-DInSAR is a very powerful and versatile tool for detailed scale landslide monitoring, although in combination with other instrumentation techniques.



Satellite SAR interferometry for wide-area slope hazard detection and site-specific monitoring of slow landslides

Data acquired by satellite-borne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems can be profitably used for the detection and quantification of slow mass movements, provided that the interferometric analysis

Engineering Geology Landslide Investigations and SAR Interferometry

We can distinguish three phases of using the SAR and other EO satellite data in landslide studies: 1. Surface characterisation, ie initial topographic and geomorphological classification, DEMs,

SAR monitoring of progressive and seasonal ground deformation using the permanent scatterers technique

The detection of both time-uniform and seasonal deformation phenomena is addressed, and a first assessment of the precision achievable by means of the PS Technique is discussed.

Two examples of the use of SAR interferometry on displacement fields of small spatial extent

Interferometric combination of pairs of SAR images acquired by the European ERS-1 satellite maps deformation fields associated with two phenomena, both of small spatial extension and located in SE


ABSTRACT The paper focuses on the measurement of land subsidence and, more generally, of land deformation phenomena using the differential interferometric SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) technique

Survey and monitoring of landslide displacements by means of L-band satellite SAR interferometry

This paper illustrates the capabilities of L-band satellite SAR interferometry for the investigation of landslide displacements. SAR data acquired by the L-band JERS satellite over the Italian and

High Resolution Differential Interferometry using Time Series of ERS and Envisat SAR Data

During the last ten years, a long history of data has been acquired by the SAR sensors on board the ERS-1 and ERS-2 satellites offering a wide range of interferometric applications. With the launch
