Deformation measurements play an important role in the life-cycle of many civil infrastructures. Being able to perform many measurements before, during and after construction by using satellite data allows engineers and risk managers to optimize infrastructure design, reduce costs of monitoring after completion and plan maintenance well in advance.
The extraction of natural resources such as oil, gas or coal from the earth will always lead to surface deformations. In built-up areas, there might be societal worry about the influence on other structures or on ecological consequences. But also in remote areas, surface deformations are often important to monitor – they can cause damage in oil & gas wells and slope instabilities in mining operations. But they can also reveal valuable (proxy) information about the reservoir behavior and how to optimize it.
InSAR has been successfully applied to:
- Reservoir (inverse) modeling
- Finetuning Enhanced Oil Recovery operations
- Quantifying gas or CO2 storage surface effects
- Tracking deep mining-related surface deformation effects
- Monitoring surface mining-related groundwater drawdown effects
