The introduction of artificial reflectors in the areas to be imaged by a radar sensor facilitates interferometric analysis over regions of weak coherence between acquisitions. Traditionally, corner reflectors have been utilized; whose strong and stable scattering characteristics make them suitable for these purposes. Such reflectors also provide...

The Netherlands has for long been witnessing problems due to subsidence. While urban infrastructure is mostly safeguarded from differential settlement by deep pile foundations, the same cannot be said about greenhouses. The greenhouses of the Netherlands has enabled the country to become the largest exporter of vegetables, second only to the...

In this study an analysis of the efficacy of using satellite data, in the form of InSAR measurements, as an extension of the volcanic monitoring network on Saba and St. Eustatius is performed. For this research, data from three different satellites that operate at three different wavelengths are available: ALOS-2 (L-band SAR), Sentinel-1 (C-band...

Subsidence is affecting different parts of the Netherlands. The strongest subsidence is observed in the province of Groningen due to ongoing natural gas extraction. Subsidence is also observed at several locations in the province of South Holland, where the processes of peat oxidation, soil compaction and the withdrawal of groundwater are at the...

In SAR interferometry, the data acquired by satellite are large. The points in the dataset are usually expressed in spatial-temporal dimension in which many epochs may be included. Extra information including contextual values and data from other sources sometimes are important to be taken into account when analyzing the deformation based on the...

We use ground and space geodetic data to study surface deformation and gravity change at Kīlauea volcano from January to September 2015. This period includes an episode of heightened activity in May 2015, which we refer to as ’the May 2015 event’. The data set consists of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), tilt, visual and seismic time...

In the Netherlands, the Delta Programme aspires to adjust spatial planning climate-proof and water-resilient, in order to be prepared for extreme weather in 2050. To achieve this ambition, municipalities, provinces, regional water authorities and central governments conduct stress tests to map out the vulnerabilities in their areas of authority...

It is estimated that about 400.000 houses in the Netherlands – both shallow and wooden pile foundations – could be facing problems with their foundations. Although, house owners are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that problems (and thereby costs) can be prevented if remedial measures are taken in time. Monitoring of the foundation can...

Kamphuis, Jurjen (author)
Geodesists use multiple methods to monitor surface deformation. This gives the opportunity to integrate complementary data for better interpretation of deformation processes. The integration of data has to deal with: (1) spatio-temporal differences in sampling methodologies, meaning that observed objects are not the same and thus observed...

Almost four million people in the Netherlands who live below sea level are protected by 17000 km of dikes against the water. Since deformation can be an indicator of a developing failure mechanism, information about this parameter can help authorities to detect weak spots in the dutch water defense structures. <br/>In this research, Radar...

This thesis explores the use of InSAR data for building monitoring. The area of main interest is the city centre of Amsterdam, where quay wall replacements are necessary on a large scale. In Amsterdam, the foundation quality needs to be checked before construction activities nearby are performed, such as a quay wall replacement. Levelling...

Built mainly on soft soil, the Netherlands is at high risk for the effects of deformation. Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) is successfully used to monitor the deformation trends at millimetre level. Unfortunately the InSAR deformation trends suffer from poor geolocation estimates, limiting the ability to link deformation...

Climate change has been a heated topic in recent years, and the mass loss of ice sheets is one aspect of it. The Antarctic Ice Sheet has experienced certain mass loss in the form of ice-shelf collapse and (sub-)surface melting, but thorough study remains limited due to the remote location of the continent. Therefore, remote sensing is expected...

This thesis explores the usage of the particle filter as a data assimilation technique to estimate subsurface processes, such as reservoir volume change from space-geodetic PS-InSAR surface measurements. The specific research area is Groningen, where subsidence is induced by hydrocarbon and salt production.<br/>The satellite radar PS-InSAR...

To improve the interpretation of the low density InSAR data a combination is made with high density airborne and terrestrial laser scanner data. Allowing for improvement of the positioning of the scatterers and the understanding of their behaviour. This combination is implemented as a web application, suitable for researchers to create 3D...

Tropospheric delays are considered to be one of the main performance limitations for Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar technology when applied to ground deformation monitoring. In this study, we evaluate the performance of ERA-Interim global atmospheric reanalysis on estimating the tropospheric delay on Sentinel-1 InSAR observations. The...

Parameter and ambiguity estimation in the temporal domain, for arcs of differential phase observations between two persistent scatterers (PS), is a critical part in Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI). Deformation models, used as constraint in the parameter estimation, often do not capture the full extent of the deformation behaviour. This...

Inhabitants and ecosystems in delta areas are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the effects of subsidence, triggered both by natural causes and anthropogenic causes. Yangon is a city in the Irrawaddy delta in Myanmar where little is known about the true extent of this hazard, while its effects can potentially harm millions of its inhabitants....

The last years have seen a few severe cases of structural damage to buildings in the Netherlands. A recent case was the shopping mall ‘t Loon in Heerlen. It would be beneficial if structural failures could be avoided, or at least be predicted. New satellite technology, Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR), proves that it is possible...

During 1997-2000 Dyngjujökull, one of the major outlet glaciers of the main Icelandic ice cap Vatnajökull, surged. This event was captured by ERS 1 and 2 satellites flying in tandem mode, enabling the use of InSAR to monitor the motion of the glacier. Since a major limitation of InSAR is its sensitivity to deformation in only one dimension, the...
