SummaryInterferometric synthetic aperture radar(InSAR) has in recent years been widely used for topographic mapping and surface deformation measurement. Its all-weather, day and night imaging capabilities, and unprecedented spatial coverage and resolution make it a unique technology for many applications.

In this research, we propose to use InSAR or pixel offset-tracking and MTInSAR to monitoring co- the post-coseismic deformation of September 24, 2013 M7.7 earthquake in south-central Pakistan, respectively. Wefocus our attention on retrieving high accuracy deformation monitoring results and geophysical parameters inversion, thus analysing seismogenic mechanism and the dynamics of the plate in the study area. The research will help to gain better insights into the deformation and its evolution of this earthquake and to improve the ability for study of earthquake prediction.
