Title: Assessing changes in ground subsidence rates, Mekong Delta, Vietnam (2019-02-26)


Activation date: 2019-02-26
Event type: Other

Activation reason:
Time series plots are available under request per each persistent scatterer (PS) point (668710 PS points) indicating ground subsidence trend.Contact us at EMSN062 service provides geospatial information supporting investigations into area based changes of subsidence rates and facilitating assessment of drivers of ground subsidence in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam. Primary objective of the service is provision of spatially and temporally consistent, dense and synoptic results giving insight on distribution and variance of subsidence phenomena in space and its dynamics in time. Persistent scatterers interferometry technique (PSI) and stacks of archive SAR imagery from Sentinel-1 sensor were used to measure displacements caused by ground subsidence and to estimate its average velocity in vertical direction.Average Ground ...
