NISAR Volcano Applications Workshop


Monday, May 6, 2019

Meeting Location: 

Cascades Volcano Observatory, Vancouver, WA

Description and Details: 


NASA and ISRO are currently developing a new Earth observing synthetic aperture radar (SAR) mission to launch in 2022 that is designed to provide information about land surface properties,
including ground deformation, soil moisture, and land cover change. The NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) mission will provide near-global L-band satellite imaging radar data twice
every 12 days with 15 m x 15 m pixel resolution (6m x 6m in North America).

This workshop is one in a series that NASA is holding with stakeholders to identify how the NISAR mission can best meet their needs. The workshop brings together volcano hazard experts, operational end users, NISAR science team and project members, and NASA program managers to identify high-priority volcano hazard applications for which NISAR can provide valuable information and to define the information requirements specific to the community’s needs.
