Dam monitoring represents a crucial issue in order to avoid catastrophic failures due to infrastructure aging or earthquake damages. Differential SAR Interferometry (DInSAR) is a technique suitable for critical infrastructure monitoring, also for the availability of free data and tools, that can be used by experts in SAR remote sensing and also by geologists and civil engineers, after having acquired the right confidence and experience in these data processing and tool use. In order to apply the DInSAR technique, in its basic and simple version, to critical infrastructure monitoring, it is very important to assess its performance. Nevertheless, validation results are not largely available in literature, because heterogeneous technical competencies are required to this aim and in situ measurements must be collected and made available. In this paper, we propose a highly reproducible DInSAR workflow that can be effectively used for dam monitoring, by validating its results with in situ measurements on some significant case studies in Italy.

Abstract

Dam monitoring represents a crucial issue in order to avoid catastrophic failures due to infrastructure aging or earthquake damages. Differential SAR Interferometry (DInSAR) is a technique suitable for critical infrastructure monitoring, also for the availability of free data and tools, that can be used by experts in SAR remote sensing and also by geologists and civil engineers, after having acquired the right confidence and experience in these data processing and tool use. In order to apply the DInSAR technique, in its basic and simple version, to critical infrastructure monitoring, it is very important to assess its performance. Nevertheless, validation results are not largely available in literature, because heterogeneous technical competencies are required to this aim and in situ measurements must be collected and made available. In this paper, we propose a highly reproducible DInSAR workflow that can be effectively used for dam monitoring, by validating its results with in situ measurements on some significant case studies in Italy.
