Studying the Earth with Interferometric Radar
May/June 2000 (vol. 2 no. 3)
pp. 52-60
The advent of inexpensive high-speed and large volume computational capabilities in the past decade has impacted many branches of scientific research, none more so than the Earth sciences. One major contribution to solid Earth science has been the development of interferometric synthetic aperture radar and its application to crustal deformation measurements. The author examines the impact of spatially dense, accurate deformation measurements on studies of the Earth's crust. The most important advances to date are related to tectonic (seismic and volcanic) processes and also to the mapping of glacier and ice sheet motions in the environmentally-sensitive and diagnostic polar regions.
