Objectives

In order to be able to remotely monitor structures and/or the earth's crust, students will be provided with a set of fundamental concepts, techniques and tools. Several relevant aspects related to InSAR will be studied, covering all significant phases, from the data acquisition to obtaining and interpreting the results of the interferometric processing. Specific objectives: To provide students with basic InSAR concepts; Understand and identify the main application areas; Understand and analyze the of data availability for a specific sensor and, from this evaluation, determine the feasibility of a deformation monitoring project; Know the SAR systems and the available processing software; Elaborate new techniques of detection, processing and / or data processing and extraction.

Teaching methods and learning activities

Student will be evaluated through two mandatory exams. Each exam will last for 1 hour and 30 minutes and will cover part of the syllabus:

Exam 1 - InSAR and DInSAR;

Exam 2 - Advanced processing techniques.

Student will be approved, under this regime, if the following conditions are cumulatively reached:

-Obtain a grade of 7 or higher in each of the written exams;

-Obtain a grade of 8.5 or higher in the practical assignment(TP);

-Obtain a grade of 9.5 or higher in the weighted average of Exam 1 (20%), Exam 2 (20%) and Practical Assignment (60%). For the calculation of the final grade, the following expression will be applied:

Final Grade = 0.2 × P1 + 0.2 × P2 + 0.6 × TP

P1 and P2 correspond respectively to the grades of Exam 1 and Exam 2 and TP correspond to the classification obtained in the practical assignment.
