Recently, two CAT-1 projects have been initiated related to Granada Basin area (Betic Cordillera, Southern Spain), aimed at the detection of deformation in the region applying time series InSAR methodology. Due to the outstanding availability of ERS-1/2 and Envisat acquisitions, a time span of more than 12 years is covered and time series can be produced, enabling us to assess the feasibility of monitoring deformation with millimetre precision. The ultimate goal of these projects is the quantification of displacements and determination of their mean directions, relating them to dynamic changes and stress accumulation in order to identify potential seismic hazard locations. For the moment, not all available scenes have been received, so a preliminary data processing has been carried out at the Padul fault area. In this paper, we present a status report of both projects.
