InSAR Processing and Theory with GMTSAR

July 21 - 23, 2014
UNAVCO, 6350 Nautilus Drive, Boulder, Colorado
Course will begin at 9 AM on July 21 and end an 12 PM on July 23.

Course Materials

This 2.5 day course will cover the theory and application of InSAR processing with GMTSAR. Lectures and exercises will be given to teach the basic theoretical aspects of InSAR. Labs will include software installation, running test data sets for standard interferogram formation as well as more advanced processing for stacking of interferograms and ScanSAR interferometry.

Brief Agenda

  • Install UNIX and csh on laptop and complete UNIX tutorial prior to workshop.
  • Install and test Generic Mapping Tools GMTV4 prior to workshop.
  • Day 1: Install and test GMTSAR. Presentations of theory on SAR and InSAR.
  • Day 2: Process interferograms for presentation. Presentations on accessing the SAR data archives at UNAVCO and ASF.
  • Day 3: Students present their InSAR results. Departures.

Computers and Data
Students should bring their own UNIX capable laptop computer with at least 2 Gbytes of memory.
Computer code, documentation, and sample data sets.
Course materials from 2013 course, including presentations, homework, and problem set solutions

Students must apply for WInSAR data access through their University representative (WInSAR Membership) or apply for access through WInSAR and the Alaska Satellite Facility. Students are strongly encouraged to install the GMTSAR software prior to the workshop and should seek assistance from the instructors.
