InSAR processing for the recognition of landslides

Abstract. Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry (InSAR) is an established method for the detection and monitoring of earth surface processes. This approach has been most successful where the observed area fulfills specific requirements, such as sufficient backscattering, flat slope gradients or very slow changes of vegetation. We investigated the capability of two different InSAR techniques and achieved good results for the recognition of landslides in China and Greece that compared well with geodetic derived movement rates. This demonstrates the strong potential of SAR Interferometry for the detection of landslides and earth surface movements.
