Summary

The objective of this service is to help:

  • Identify hazards
  • Improve safety, and
  • Mitigate risk

Terrafirma is based upon the revolutionary remote sensing technique of Persistent Scatterer Interferometry which has the power to map millimetric ground motion phenomena from space. PSI involves the processing of 50+ radar scenes from an archive dating back to 1991 to identify networks of reflecting ground features, such as buildings, bridges and other structures, against which precise phase measurements can be made over time. The results provide unique, wide-area maps of ground and building motion that can be difficult if not impossible to detect by conventional means. The service currently focuses on urban subsidence and landslides but will eventually include earthquake zones, coastlines and flood plains.
