Detecting Landscape Disturbance at the Nasca Lines Using SAR Data Collected from Airborne and Satellite Platforms

Douglas Comer, Bruce Chapman, Jacob Comer
2017 Geosciences  
For Sentinel-1, this does not depend on collecting data in fine-beam modes, which generally sacrifice the size of the area covered for a higher spatial resolution.  ...  We also report on pixel value stretching for a visual analysis of SAR data, quantitative assessment of landscape disturbance, and statistical testing for significant landscape change.  ...  The statistical analysis was led by Jacob A. Comer. Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

Interferometric SAR and Machine Learning: Using Open Source Data to Detect Archaeological Looting and Destruction

Hassan El-Hajj
2021 Journal of Computer Applications in Archaeology  
In this paper, I present an approach that uses open source data from two of the European Space Agency's (ESA) Copernicus Constellation, Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 in order to generate disturbance patches  ...  In recent years, the abundant availability of Very High Resolution (VHR) imaging satellites with short revisit times meant that it was possible to monitor a large portion of these sites from space.  ...  SAR data was used to detect the ground disturbances on the Nasca Lines UNESCO World Heritage Site in Peru (Cigna et al., 2018) , as well as to map the disturbances in Apamea (Tapete, Cigna & Donoghue  ...
