Remote sensing and Geodesy for geohazard monitoring

As a spin-off of INGV we inherit a long standing experience in the use of optical and radar remote sensing and geodetic methods for the monitoring and analysis of geological and geophysical hazards: volcanic eruptions, earthquake faults, land subsidence, deep seated landslides and gravitational deformations, sinkholes, etc.
We use a multiple-scale approach, exploiting a wide range of satellite, airborne (manned and unmanned), and ground-collected data, and apply standard and non-standard measuring and modeling techniques to generate high-resolution, high accuracy maps of different geophysical and environmental parameters.
We provide advanced scientific products, as well as consultancy services, in these subjects.
