Results of project developed by CNR-IREA using the ONDA platform published on renowned journal

A public paper on the surface deformation analysis project developed by CNR-IREA – the Institute for Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment (IREA) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Italy – has been published on the peer-reviewed open access journal Remote Sensing.
The article presents an advanced processing pipeline for the generation of continental scale differential synthetic aperture radar (DInSAR) deformation time series.
The solution is based on the parallel small baseline subset (P-SBAS) approach and on the joint exploitation of Sentinel-1 [...]
