About this book

Interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) is a relatively new remote sensing tool that is capable of measuring ground-surface deformation with centimeter-to-subcentimeter precision at a spatial resolution of tens of meters over an area of hundreds to thousands of square kilometers. With its global coverage and all-weather imaging capability, InSAR has become an increasingly important technique for studying volcanoes in remote regions such as the Aleutian Islands. The spatial distribution of surface deformation data derived from InSAR images enables the construction of detailed mechanical models to enhance the study of magmatic processes.

Contents

Foreword; Preface; Chapter 1: Review of interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) techniques; Chapter 2: InSAR image analysis, interpretation, and improvement; Chapter 3: Advanced InSAR processing: permanent scatterer InSAR (PSInSAR) and ScanSAR InSAR; Chapter 4: Tectonic setting of Aleutian volcanism; Chapter 5: Role of ground surface deformation in volcano monitoring Chapter 6: InSAR imaging of Aleutian volcanoes; Chapter 7: Dances of Aleutian volcanoes: diverse styles and rhythms to the beat of subduction; Index; List of high-quality radar intensity images (including georeference parameters; List of InSAR deformation images (including imaging geometry)

Biography

Dr Zhong Lu and Dr Daniel Dzurisin have worked closely together for several years on InSAR projects in the Aleutian volcanic arc and have co-authored 16 papers on planetary geology and volcanology, as well as a chapter on InSar in Dr Dzurisin's first Springer-Praxis book, Volcano Deformation: Geodetic Monitoring Techniques.
