IN041:
Looking Ahead to “Universal” Spaceborne InSAR Data Products and Services





Session ID#: 26411

Session Description:
Each successive spaceborne InSAR system not only leads to more discipline knowledge but also serves a larger community through more useful data products and applications. ESA’s Sentinel 1A&B satellites bring unprecedented coverage from freely available wide swath data; NASA’s NISAR mission will have similar reach and is now defining just what data products and services best serve science and applications users; e.g., geocoding all products while applying interferometric corrections yields interferograms and time series accessible to a broad spectrum of users, from specialists to those accustomed to more traditional data sets such as LANDSAT. This session solicits papers covering qualities and attributes of products from planned, current and previous InSAR systems, or potential services that offered by agencies or value-added providers, in order to provide a context for and select the best ideas from past and future systems. Also solicited are examples of novel InSAR applications, products, and data flows.
