Abstract

Until recently the coarse resolution of topographic mapping acted as a break on understanding the forces and processes that shape the Earth's surface. However, active surface deformation is an important indicator for the earth crustal dynamics since it is directly linked to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and landslides. Both airborne laser scanning systems (LiDAR) and spaceborne interferometric synthetic aperture radars (InSAR) have provided valuable information for many case studies requiring high-resolution characterization of ground movement in relatively large areas to assess the threat and impact of natural hazards especially for volcanic eruptions.
