Researchers at Caltech made the animations below which show the seasonal deformation and subsidence of Earth’s surface, respectively, as a result of groundwater extraction and refilling. This occurs when soil and earth layers are compacted and undergo subsidence due to the decrease of upward hydrostatic pressure balancing the weight of the layers.
Surface deformation and subsidence of Earth’s surface is measured using Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR). ISAR is also used for natural hazard assessment. This includes applications to regions of volcanic, tectonic (e.g. faults and mountains), and construction activities.
Research Proposal Writing for Business, Social Sciences and Humanities covers some good material:
The 5th day at the DTU PhD Summer School on Remote Sensing for Wind Energy covered Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) remote sensing and power curves.
It concluded with a plenary session.
