Research

InSAR Laboratory

In our research we use geodetic data derived from satellite Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) to study crustal deformation processes.   We study active volcanoes, active tectonics, glacial isostatic adjustment and land subsidence.  

The research of our group is supported by NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the United States Geological Survey and the Department of Energy (DOE).
