Abstract(Summary)
Satellite interferometric radar (InSAR) is emerging as an excellent tool to monitor terrain stability. This report evaluates the newest techniques of two- and three-dimensional InSAR, applied specifically in permafrost terrain. Three-dimensional InSAR, as implemented here, is seen to be less reliable than two-dimensional InSAR. Two-dimensional InSAR provides valuable information about slope processes and the nature of terrain movement.
