In this study SAR interferometry technique has been applied over Kos Island (Hellenic Volcanic Arc) in order to detected pre-, co- and post-seismic deformation and to compare with the deformation detected in Nisyros Island for the same period using the same interferometric pairs. The seismic unrest activity observed in Nisyros volcano (1996-1999) could produce crustal deformation in the adjacent island of Kos. The results of the interferometric processing show that co- and post-seismic deformation was not possible to be detected due to the obtained low coherence. Contrary the results of the interferometric pair of the pre-seismic unrest period show two fringes of deformation in the southwest part of the island, the same amount of deformation was observed in Nisyros island. © 2005 IEEE.
