InSAR: An introduction to Processing and Applications for Geoscientists

June 16-18, 2008
UNAVCO, Boulder, Colorado

Course will begin at 1pm on Monday, June 16th and will end at noon on Wednesday, June 18th.

Course Materials including Agenda, Notes, and Presentation.

InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) is a powerful tool for measuring Earth surface deformation due to earthquakes, volcanic unrest, ground water migration, and anthropogenic activity. InSAR is also being increasingly used in studies of cryosphere (motion of glaciers and ice sheets) and atmosphere (water content in the troposphere). New techniques and applications of InSAR are rapidly developing, including stacking, time-series analysis of surface deformation, ScanSAR, polarimetric InSAR, and along-track interferometry.  A three day workshop will introduce InSAR processing and applications to new users.  If you have considered using InSAR data and imagery in your research or want to learn more about how to apply InSAR to new areas of research, this workshop is for you.  The workshop includes an overview of the technology and its application to Earth Science, an introduction to a common processing package, and an overview of different processing packages.

Faculty: Paul Rosen, JPL; Yuri Fialko, University of California San Diego; Eric Fielding, JPL

Computer Requirements: UNAVCO will provide rented computers installed with all relevant software for the course.
