One of the most significant aims of this research project has been to apply SAR methods for the monitoring, the investigation and the evaluation of ground deformation phenomena in the Crotone province (Southern Italy). In detail, landslides and subsidence are the most remarkable and dangerous natural hazards in the study area, affecting people, buildings and main infrastructures. The intention was to show the potential of Differential Interferometry SAR (DInSAR) techniques for the detection and the estimation of the velocities and of the deformation of surface displacements, both on very local scale (slope scale) and on wide areas (kilometre-size extension). Such aim is achievable through the integration of DInSAR techniques along with conventional monitoring tools. The general idea of the project has been to assess the landslide hazard in selected areas of the Crotone province and to update the related landslide inventory map of the area, dated back to 2006, by means of DInSAR techniques. These goals have been reached through the comprehension and the understanding of the movements, on one hand on a very local scale (slope), and on the other hand, on a wide-area scale (the whole Crotone province). Additionally, two other case studies of subsidence, originated by different sources, have been studied with interferometry techniques, showing the suitability of such methods for other types of ground deformation. Several Multi Temporal Interferometry (MTI, Wasowski & Bovenga, 2014) approaches have been here applied, in order to investigate and analyze displacements present in the area, and the integration with “conventional” methods, such as inclinometers, piezometers and geomorphological surveys, turned out to be relevant for these purposes, providing very precise information about the nature and causes of ground deformation.
