Monitoring and modeling tailings impoundment settlement near Great Salt Lake (UTAH) using multi-platform time-series InSAR observations

Abstract

Tailings impoundment failures may lead to catastrophically fatal, environmental and financial consequences. However, field investigation and geotechnical analysis are limited by sparse instrumentation and high cost. Here we use time-series Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) method to map out the settlement over the entire tailings impoundment… (More)
