  • Maintenance and development of LiCS system

Research interests

Specialization on applications of satellite-borne SAR interferometry mainly for monitoring of subsidence, detection of landslide activity and infrastructure displacements.

Experience in application of SAR polarimetry for detection of forest changes (especially in tropical areas).

Development of Czech nation-wide Sentinel-1 InSAR processing system, and now, support in global tectonics/volcanic InSAR observation system (LiCSAR).

Research groups and institutes

  • Institute of Geophysics and Tectonics
