Event details

Movements on the Earth’s surface can now be routinely measured, with millimetric precision, on a day to week timescale. However, when everything is moving it is crucial to separate signals from the noise to work out which signals indicate risk. In this presentation, Dr Jennifer Scoular will explore several applications of InSAR data for geotechnical risk covering slope stability, insurance disputes from groundwater extraction and how to develop a proactive maintenance strategy with new insights from InSAR.
