MinSouth Snap – From Another Angle
April 27 @ 1:00 pm
Challenging the Orthodoxy of Traditional InSAR Ground Motion Surveys
Over the last 20 years or so, Interferometric SAR (InSAR) has become an established method for measuring land motion from satellites and, since the advent of free data from remote sensing missions such as Sentinel-1, can be a very cost-effective way to support civil engineering and infrastructure asset management projects. However, there is a serious downside in that most current techniques, such as PSInSAR and SBAS, are very poor at monitoring motion over rural landcover, such as soils and vegetated surfaces. In this presentation, Dr Andy Sowter from Terra Motion Limited will describe the current capability of satellite InSAR and, using case studies from the mining industry, show how he and his colleagues have seriously challenged the preconceptions of InSAR experts everywhere, opening up new and exciting opportunities for ubiquitous and remote ground motion monitoring at all latitudes and in all terrains.
