Cerro Blanco Volcanic Complex (CBVC) is one of the youngest caldera complexes in the Southern Central Andes. Subsidence registered at CBVC has shown a slowdown in deformation velocity since 1992 (2.6 cm/yr) to 2010 (0.87 cm/yr). We update the deformation state of this caldera system by processing DInSAR data between 2003 and 2020 and GPS as a compl...

Main aim of this work is to explore the suitability of high resolution SAR images for measuring ice flow velocity within glaciers. Available techniques for this purpose are Differential SAR Interferometry (DInSAR) and Offset Tracking. The former, although theoretically much more precise, is frequently limited by coherence loss (or lacking of cohere...
