Monitoring the Movements of Volcanoes with Radar

Monitoring small motions of Earth's surface around volcanoes from the ground requires expensive data to acquire a small number of observation points. However, researchers can use satellite radar data to produce maps that show small amouts of deformation accurately mapped over a broad area. These deformation maps can help researchers understand volcanoes and can be useful in natural hazard, geothermal and mineral resource studies.
