Investigating Earth surface displacement with the on-demand P-SBAS service for Sentinel-1

Our planet continually undergoes transformations, with natural and human-induced displacement shaping its surface. Comprehending these changes is paramount across various disciplines, from environmental science to disaster preparedness and response. Fortunately, advancements in satellite technology have provided us with tools to detect and study the Earth’s surface dynamics. In particular, the Differential Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry […]

EGU 2024: training course on the P-SBAS DInSAR web tool for Earth surface deformation

Earth surface deformation due to phenomena like volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, landslides, land subsidence due to fluid extraction activities or large infrastructure construction, can be effectively investigated using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors. Through the SAR Interferometry (InSAR) technique, two radar images of the Earth’s surface are captured from slightly different angles. By comparing these images, […]

OCRE Project by CENTEC: more than a decade of processed CryoSat-2 and Sentinel-3 AB data over coastal zones available on ESA Altimetry Virtual Lab

We are pleased to share the conclusion of the European Commission OCRE (Open Clouds for Research Environments) [1] financed project led by CENTEC (Centre for Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering) – Instituto Superior Técnico de Lisboa. With our support here at EarthConsole®, this project aimed at evaluating renewable wave energy resources in the coastal zone, […]

EarthConsole® Stories: Monitoring water level changes in the Yangtze River using FF-SAR data

EarthConsole® Stories are experiences about how we helped universities, research centres or service developers to leverage Earth Observation data to extract valuable insights for their research, educational or pre-commercial projects. This study aims at using Sentinel-6 and Sentinel-3 FFSAR data for monitoring changes in water levels within the Yangtze River during the period of January […]

EarthConsole® 2023 Wrapped: A Year in Review and Exciting Updates for 2024

As we near the close of 2023, it is the perfect time to unwrap some of the highlights of this year, which has been nothing short of extraordinary for EarthConsole®. We’ve been right there, sticking to our promise of helping the scientific community getting value added information from Earth Observation data. Been at it for […]

EarthConsole® Stories: ESA Arctic+ Salinity project studying freshwater fluxes in the Arctic

EarthConsole® Stories are experiences about how we helped universities, research centres or service developers to leverage earth observation data to extract valuable insights for their research, educational or pre-commercial projects. Sea salinity is a key parameter that controls the ocean circulation, and currents are key drivers of the climate of the planet. Sea Surface Salinity […]
