New directions in seismic hazard assessment through focused Earth Observation in the Marmara Supersite

The project aims to collect, share and integrate multidisciplinary data (seismologic, geochemical, surveying, satellite, etc.) in order to carry out assessment, mitigation and management of seismic  risk in the region of the Sea of ​​Marmara. IREA  activity in the project concerns the analysis and monitoring of deformations of the earth's surface in selected areas in the region of the Sea of ​​Marmara, through the use of the technique of differential interferometry called SBAS (Small Baseline Subset) applied to Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data in X-band acquired  by the constellation of SAR sensors Cosmo-SkyMed.
