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.
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.
The CDI group in November 2022: Aleajandra Perea Barreto, Margherita Fittipaldi, Shaozhuo Liu, Adrien Muolin, Matthieu Ribot, Sigurjón Jónsson, Xing Li, Jihong Liu, Rémi Matrau and Adriano Nobile.
09 November, 2023Ph.D. Thesis Defense - Rémi Matrau
Congratulations to CDI's Ph.D. candidate Rémi Matrau, who successfully defended his thesis in which he analyzed the Holocene deformation of the Húsavík-Flatey Transform Fault in the Tjörnes Fracture Zone in North Iceland using paleoseismological and morphotectonics studies
