2021-08-26: InSAR for Ground Motion Monitoring

code-de project

Using practical examples, this workshop will present several use cases of CODE-DE for Radar Interferometry (InSAR). A particular focus is on the setup and usage of virtual machines for InSAR data processing.

In this context, we will also present different software for InSAR processing. Eventually, different options for direct data access through the CODE-DE platform will be discussed and showcased. The data volumes processed in Radar Interferometry are often quite large and a quick and easy access to satellite data is therefore of vital interest.

  5. Discussion, Q&A

Mr. Nicolas Jacob Wagener is a research associate at the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) in the department B4.4 Hazard Analysis, Remote Sensing. Here he works on various issues related to radar remote sensing with a special focus on (multitemporal) radar interferometry.

About the BGR

The Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources is the central geoscientific advisory institution of the Federal Government. It is part of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Its core topics are energy resources, mineral resources, groundwater, soil, geohazards and the subsurface as a storage and economic area. Its mission is to contribute to maintaining or improving living conditions through the responsible use of geopotentials by providing research and advice.

The tasks and areas of application of remote sensing at the BGR include the exploration and assessment of raw materials, the environment, soil, groundwater and geohazards in Germany and abroad. The focus is on application-oriented testing and further development of data processing chains, algorithms and concepts for the thematic evaluation of multispectral, hyperspectral, thermal and radar data. BGR Remote Sensing is responsible for the operation of the Soil Movement Service Germany (BBD).  Using multi-temporal radar interferometry, the BBD allows the estimation and monitoring of ground movements in the millimetre range for all of Germany.
