Abstract

The capability of DInSAR (Differential Interferometric SAR) for precise large-scale deformation analysis has been shown in various case studies. Generally, DInSAR possesses a high potential for monitoring deformation, but only the velocity component parallel to the line-of-sight direction can be measured. An alternative approach, capable to retrieve the deformation velocity in both range and azimuth direction, is the so-called spectral diversity technique. Spectral diversity is based on a phase comparison between different sub-aperture interferograms of the scene and can generally be regarded as a high-performance technique for estimating the mis-registration between complex SAR images.
