OBSERVATIONAL STRATEGIES

 

 

InSARUnderstanding the solid Earth and moving toward predictive capabilities where appropriate requires a broad observational strategy, incorporating numerous methodologies (including spaceborne and ground measurements), technological advances, and complementarity among observations. The SESWG recommends the following seven observational strategies to address the fundamental solid-Earth questions that frame this report.

Recommended Observational Strategies

1. Surface Deformation
2. High-Resolution Topography
3. Variability of Earth's Magnetic Field
4. Variability of Earth's Gravity Field
5. Imaging Spectroscopy of Earth's Changing Surface
6. Space Geodetic Networks and the International Terrestrial Reference Frame
7. Promising Techniques and Observations
