Abstract

Interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) techniques are used in numerous applications, especially in long-term monitoring of surface deformations. For these studies, a large data volume is needed and the issue of careful data selection is critical. One of the main parameters to decide whether a particular data set is suitable for a certain application is the interferometric baseline. The knowledge of the baselines limits the extra processing efforts required to determine the usefulness of data sets for the application project.
