PSInSAR Analysis in the Pisa Urban Area (Italy): A Case Study of Subsidence Related to Stratigraphical Factors and Urbanization

Lorenzo Solari, Andrea Ciampalini, Federico Raspini, Silvia Bianchini, Sandro Moretti
2016 Remote Sensing  
The case studies in the eastern sector of the urban area have demonstrated the direct correlation between the age of construction of buildings and the registered subsidence rates, showing the importance  ...  Permanent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) has been used to detect and characterize the subsidence of the Pisa urban area, which extends for 33 km 2 within the Arno coastal plain (Tuscany, Italy).  ...  The land subsidence in the study area is mainly due to two principal factors: high compressibility of clayey layers and recent urbanization of the eastern part of the city.  ...
