Delft, Netherlands

Integration of geodetic and imaging techniques for monitoring and modelling the Earth’s surface deformations and seismic risk

when 28 August 2023 - 1 September 2023
language English
duration 1 week
credits 2 EC

The main topic of the school will be to present the theoretical and practical aspects in surface deformation monitoring by application of the three main observing methods used within the GATHERS project (

* Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR)
* Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)
* Global navigation satellite system (GNSS)

Course leader

Freek van Leijen and Ramon Hanssen (TU Delft)
Mattia Crespi and Augusto Mazzoni (University of Rome La Sapienza)
Norbert Pfeifer (TU Wien)
Jan Kaplon, Grzegorz Jóźków, Kamila Pawłuszek-Filipiak, Maya Ilieva, Iwona Kudłacik (UPWr, Poland)

Target group

MSc students, PhD students, researchers and professional LiDAR, GNSS and InSAR users.

Course aim

The school aims to provide sustainable basic knowladge on the three geotetic topics of the course, namely INSAR, LiDAR and GNSS seimology, to propose an overview of their integration for monitoring of anthropogenic hazards, and to strengthen the networking among the young generation of European scientists interested in geodesy, geodynamics and remote sensing.
