The introduction of imaging radar has been a very important development in remote sensing since the early 1960s. It has opened up many new applications in geoscience and astronomy and provides an alternative to optical imaging, which needs solar illumination and cloudless skies. Imaging radar may be employed for measuring spatial variations in the distance to the earth, for example those caused by relief, using two images obtained by Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR). The feasibility of deformation monitoring by InSAR may be quickly evaluated by considering a limited number of design parameters and environmental factors. The authors treat these parameters and factors in greater detail.
