Interferometric synthetic aperture radar, also abbreviated InSAR or IfSAR, is a radar technique used in geodesy and remote sensing. This geodetic method uses two or more synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images to generate maps of surface deformation or digital elevation, using differences in the phase of the waves returning to the satellite , or aircraft. The technique can potentially measure centimetre-scale changes in deformation over timespans of days to years. It has applications for geophysical
