Abstract/Summary

We model terrain visibility and topographic distortions to the ERS-1/2 SAR and ENVISAT ASAR IS2 satellite acquisition modes in Great Britain using the 5m NEXTMap DTM. Predictions of Persistent Scatterers (PS) densities identifiable over the landmass are drawn using the CORINE Land Cover 2006 dataset which is calibrated based on 6 PS datasets available for various areas of the UK. InSAR feasibility to monitor ground motions is discussed through the example of the Manchester area, with particular regard to landslide deposits in the Peak District.
