G015:
Recent Advances in SAR and InSAR Processing, Analysis, and Cloud Computing





Session ID#: 26762

Session Description:
We are entering a golden age of civilian SAR remote sensing with ~10 satellites in orbit and a fleet of new SAR satellites (including NISAR) to be launched by 2020. This wealth of data provides the geoscience community with enormous opportunities but also significant technical and logistical challenges. This session, co-sponsored by WInSAR and the Alaska Satellite Facility, aims to prepare the ground for addressing these challenges.

We solicit contributions showcasing recent developments in SAR in the following three areas: (1) Recent developments in data processing techniques that take full advantage of the densely sampled time-series information provided by modern SAR sensors, including both InSAR and SAR amplitude time-series methods. (2) Recent advances in big data and cloud-based processing techniques applied to SAR and InSAR, and development and distribution of value-added products. (3) Submissions that apply SAR and InSAR data to analyzing Earth science problems and/or the monitoring of geohazards.
