Satellite Monitoring of Hazards: A Focus on Istanbul, Turkey



Satellite remote sensing data can provide important information on ground displacement, which can help scientists better understand and monitor geohazards such as earthquakes, volcano unrest, or landslides. However, access to such data and their results often has been difficult or has occurred with significant delay. As a result, a remotely sensed assessment of ground displacements is often not available until months or years after the occurrence of a natural disaster.
