Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report examines the potential of the upcoming RADARSAT Constellation Mission to deliver information useful for monitoring terrain stability in permafrost regions. The report examines the potential advantages of the four day interferometric repeat interval and the potential disadvantages of the Standard Coverage policy that will restrict the availability of high resolution data.
