Abstract

Measurements of ground deformation with millimetric accuracy and the reconstruction of the history of deformations in the last 20 years with Persistent Scatterer techniques have a high potential for landslides studies. In this work we analyze pro and cons of PSI techniques to update the Italian Inventory of Landslides (IFFI) using data from ERS 1/2 (1992–2001) and RADARSAT (2003–2010) satellites. The study area is located in North-Western Italy and belongs to three regions: Piemonte, Lombardia and Liguria.
