Summary of Proposal LAN2508

TitleSlumgullion Landslide motion measured by InSAR and pixel offsets with Staring Spotlight data
Investigator Fielding, Eric - Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Earth Sciences
Team Members
Prof. Burgmann, Roland - UC Berkeley, Earth and Planetary Science
Dr. Barnhart, William - US Geological Survey, National Earthquake Information Center
Madson, Austin - University of California - Los Angeles, Geography
SummaryThis project will use InSAR and SAR pixel offset tracking analysis of TerraSAR-X Staring Spotlight mode data to investigate the measurement of motion on the rapidly moving Slumgullion landslide. We will also compare the TerraSAR-X Staring Spotlight data with TSX stripmap data and topographic elevation and elevation change measurements from related TanDEM-X and TerraSAR-X Archive projects over the landslide. The rapid deformation of the Slumgullion landslide (1-7 meters/year) makes this area an ideal natural laboratory for InSAR studies and pixel displacement of Earth topography and topographic change processes. A grant to fund this project is ongoing under NASA’s Applications of Geodetic Imaging program.
