Radar interferometry studies of the Earth's topography

Authors


Abstract

Topographic information is required for many geological and geophysical investigations. For example, detailed topographic data alone can be used to map geological structure and thus reveal the effects of tectonic deformation. Additionally, they can be combined with gravity field measurements to constrain models of lithospheric structure and rheology [e.g., Topographic Science Working Group, 1988].
