3vG InSAR Monitoring Takes the Stage at Geohazards 7
On June 3rd, 2017, together with fellow experts in remote sensing technology, 3vGeomatics co-presented a short course, “Geohazards and the Eye in the Sky: Why You Need to Include Remote Sensing Into Your Assessments – And How to Do It”. This half-day workshop explored the modern techniques for acquiring critical information using interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR), 3D stereo air photographs, light detection and ranging (LiDAR), and photogrammetry (specifically structure from motion – SfM).
One of our InSAR specialists, Murray Down, presented an overview of InSAR monitoring and demonstrated its application to the Ten Mile landslide in British Columbia. InSAR monitoring, which is a type of remote sensing, is an essential part of the toolkit for engineers and geoscientists that need to observe, interpret, understand and design in the physical environment. This is specifically applicable in the assessment of geohazards that threaten infrastructure, communities, and transportation corridors.
This short course was held at Geohazards 7, the 7th Canadian Geohazards Conference, in Canmore, Alberta by The Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS). The CGS’s Geohazards conferences are the premier forums in Canada for the sharing and dissemination of scientific and engineering knowledge related to geohazard assessment and risk management.
