Remote sensing utilizing the optical portions of the electromagnetic spectrum has several limitations. First, if is limited by cloud cover. Second, it is limited to daytime observation. Finally, the spectral region sampled do not always provide sufficient information about Earth surface properties. Radar data, which utilizes the microwave portion of the spectrum, is in most cases not limited to daytime observation and by cloud cover and can provide important additional information about (physical properties of) Earth surface and vegetation canopies.
Radar interferometry is a modern technology to acquire and monitor the geometry and deformation of the Earth's surface.
This module provides an overview on the state of the art of SAR and InSAR, potential applications as well as information extraction methods.
