Monitoring a Volcanic Arc from Space

Zhong Lu and Daniel Dzurisin

InSAR IMAGING OF ALEUTIAN VOLCANOES: Monitoring a Volcanic Arc from Space Interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) is a revolutionary remote sensing tool capable of measuring surface deformation with millimeter-scale precision at a spatial resolution of meters over an area of thousands of square kilometers. With its global coverage and all-weather imaging capability, InSAR has become an increasingly important technique for studying volcanoes in remote regions such as the Aleutian volcanic arc. Detailed surface deformation data derived from InSAR images inform numerical and conceptual models of the subsurface beneath volcanoes and advance the study of magmatic processes.
