Brown Bag Seminar: Batuhan Osmanoglu

NASA Goddard

Synthetic aperture radar interferometry was an unintended result of launching synthetic aperture radar satellites in space. The main purpose of synthetic aperture was to increase resolution in the along track dimension, which required these radars be phase coherent. After 1993, with D. Massonnet publishing an interferogram in the cover of Nature magazine for the Landers Earthquake, interferometry gained a wide attraction and has been applied to many fields of Earth Science over the past two decades. In this talk, the author will present his adventures with radar remote sensing, and will provide examples of applications he used them for spanning from the arctic to equatorial regions, touching on fields like glaciology, ground deformation analysis, and of course signal processing. The talk will be given at a basic concepts level where no experience in the field is necessary
