Dear colleagues,

If you are feeling the absence of your biennial “Fringe” trip to Italy this year, please consider joining us at ICTP Trieste for a workshop (including training and conference) on:

"Synthetic Aperture Radar: A global solution to geological hazards"

2-6 September 2013

On days 4 and 5 of the workshop, we will provide InSAR training including a full day on the use of the Nest-DORIS software for creating interferograms, and a full day, led by Andy Hooper, on the use of the StaMPS software to extract ground displacements from time series of SAR acquisitions.

Days 1-3 will be a plenary conference, covering topics including:

- InSAR methodologies for monitoring ground deformation
- InSAR applications (tectonics, volcanic deformation, subsidence, landslides)
- The future of InSAR: a new era of satellite data.

Invited speakers include:

Falk Amelung, University of Miami, US
