DEFORMATION MONITORING USING SATELLITE RADAR INTERFEROMETRY
Keywords: SAR, DInSAR, Persistent Scatterer Interferometry, European Ground Motion Service
Abstract. The paper is focused on the Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) technique. First, it addresses the substantial evolution of PSI in the last twenty years. Three main factors are identified: the availability of SAR images, the development of advanced data processing techniques, and the increase of the computation capability. The paper then addresses the PSI deformation monitoring initiatives at regional and national scale. Finally, in the last section, it is described a pan European deformation monitoring service: the European Ground Motion Service (EGMS).
