Breaking new ground: Ground-based radar device detects shifts in land, structures

  For several decades, geologic scientists have used satellite radar imagery and a technique called interferometry to remotely measure deformation of the ground associated with groundwater pumping, volcanic activity, earthquakes and other natural phenomena.  More recently, similar techniques have been used to measure potentially dangerous structural movement in dams, buildings and earth slopes. On the […]
