Since the 1980s, two modern geodetic techniques, namely the Global Positioning System (GPS) and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR), have revolutionized the study and monitoring of active volcanoes. These techniques have documented patterns of deformation before, during, and after eruptions of volcanoes, and enabled exploration of quantitative physical models to understand the magmatic processes.
A Note from Dr. Gens: Summer SAR Class
What an experience! From the feedback, we have concluded that there is a need for this kind of course and we hope to provide it again next summer.
After a winter of data calibration research and planning, the ASF Data Quality group geared up for a summer of new beginnings. The short season in Alaska provides suitable weather for numerous hardware maintenance, retrieval and deployment tasks. This year produced several elaborate creations that will move ASF data calibration into the years ahead.
