Crustal Deformation and InSAR Group

We use satellite radar interferometric (InSAR) imaging of the Earth’s surface to measure ground deformation due to a variety of geophysical processes.

Overview

Welcome to our website!
We are a research group in geophysics at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) that focuses on the use of satellite radar interferometric (InSAR) imaging of the Earth’s surface to measure ground deformation due to a variety of geophysical processes. We are interested in everything that moves the ground, e.g. earthquakes, magma accumulation under volcanoes, and pressure changes in reservoirs.
