Following Fringe 2005, the European
Space Agency organised its third International Workshop on Envisat ASAR
interferometry and its fifth International Workshop on ERS SAR Interferometry:
Advances in SAR Interferometry from ENVISAT and ERS missions, which was
held at ESA ESRIN in Frascati, Italy from the 26th-30th November 2007.
The main objectives of the workshop were to:
Provide a forum
for scientific exchange and to initiate and encourage close collaboration
between individual research groups.
results from the latest studies in the field and asses the state of the art.
Provide a forum
for ESA Principal Investigators to present results and status of AO and Cat-1
first interferometric results from Third Party Missions
ALOS-PALSAR, TerraSAR-X and Radarsat-2.
Discuss the use
of InSAR data for scientific research and applications
available data ordering and analysis tools.
recommendations for algorithm development, new products, future missions and
assess the maturity and operational readiness of InSAR
progress/status of recommendations of FRINGE 2005.
The workshop was open to ESA Principal Investigators and co-investigators,
scientists and students working in the field of SAR interferometry and its
applications, and to representatives from national, European and international
space agencies and Value Adding Industry.
