Subsidence determined by InSAR – a review
Author: Ana-Maria GLOD-LENDVAI
Abstract: Multi-temporal interferometry or InSAR allows monitoring of a deformation phenomenon at millimetre level, via the generation of mean deformation velocity maps and displacement time series from a data set of acquired SAR satellite images. The advantages of satellite radar interferometry for displacement monitoring are demonstrated in cases of monitoring man-made structures (e.g. buildings, bridges, dams, subway lines, mines exploitation). This paper presents works in which subsidence phenomena were analyzed by InSAR technique.
