Monitoring of mass movement in Kyrgyzstan using L-band and X-band SAR Interferometry

eq3Year: 2010-2011
Country: Kyrgyzstan
Location within country: Osh province

This project aimed at analyzing the potential use of ALOS/PALSAR L-band data for mass movement monitoring due to landslides.
Osh province in the south-west of Kyrgyzstan is considered to have a high frequency of occurrence of landslides. In this project, interferometric processing was performed to monitor mass movement due to the landslides.

Earthquake Deformation Study using SAR Interferometry in Pamir-Alai Area

eq2Year: 2009-2010
Country: Kyrgyzstan
Location within country: Pamir-Alai Area

The objectives of this project were: 1) To generate interferogram using ALOS-PALSAR single look complex data, 2) To create a displacement map by removing the simulated topographic related phase generated from the SRTM digital surface model (DSM), 3) To compare the produced displacement map with available fault data
Pamir-Alai area of Kyrgyzstan was hit by a 6.6 magnitude earthquake on October 6, 2008, and followed by two aftershocks of magnitude 5.7 and 5.1.
