[STT54-05] Ground-based radar interferometer observation system for monitoring of surface deformation around the volcanic crater
Keywords:Ground-based radar, volcano, deformation
This system is composed by two GBRI sensors; the synthetic aperture radar type (LiSA mobile k09 of LiSALab) and the real aperture radar type (GPRI2 of Gamma Remote Sensing). These GBRIs use the 17GHz microwave with 200-300MHz bandwidth, and then resolution of the range direction is better than 1 meter. LiSA mobile k09 transmits a microwave while the antenna moves on the rail of 3m, and high resolution for the cross-range direction can be obtained by synthetic aperture processing. On the other hand, GPRI2 uses the antenna with 2.5m width for cross-range direction, and comparable resolution for cross-range direction with LiSA mobile k09 can be obtained.
GPRI2 was already installed in the Asama volcano observatory of the Earthquake Research Institute, the University of Tokyo, and we started test observation. At February 2016, observation area is covered by snow. In such situation, coherence during 1-hour was stable in most time. However, non-deformation component such as tropospheric delay has often reached to 2cm in 1-hour, and then reduction of such component is one of big issues in this research. In the presentation, we will show investigation results for longer observation data. Furthermore installation of the LiSA mobile k09 will be finished in March. We will also show its initial observation result in the presentation.
