InSAR data analysis at Kamchatka during 2016

Geophysical monitoring in seismically active areas depends on geodeformation processes in the earth's crust. Observations of earth's crust strain-stress using gps-measurements, laser interferometers give only an opportunity to analyze the dynamics in time without the possibility of extrapolation to adjacent areas. In this regard, it is useful to apply a radar interferometry technology to measure the displacements of the earth's surface. The report includes the results of processing the radar data of the Sentinel-1A satellite. Several qualitative interferometric pairs were obtained during the period from June to October 2016. A high coherence coefficient is observed in open areas in the vicinity of volcanic structures and adjacent territories, as well as on the west coast of Kamchatka, where there is no high vegetation. The main factor that significantly reduces the coherence of images is the forest cover. Possibility of estimating the surface displacement at regions with a high coherence coefficient is discussed.
