Cover story

The quantification of land subsidence in transitional environments, including lagoons, deltas, estuaries, farmlands, and urban centers, is particularly challenging. The Venice coastland is among the most sensitive sites to land subsidence worldwide. Only a few millimeters of loss of elevation drastically raise the deterioration of this extraordinary environment and the concern for the historical heritage. Over the last decade, TerraSAR-X interferometry has been effectively used in Venice, leading to significant advancements in understanding the main drivers of land subsidence. The high resolution and regular acquisition of TerraSAR-X images has allowed accurate measurements to be obtained at the regional and local scale, on natural and artificial radar reflectors, splitting natural and anthropogenic processes. The important heterogeneity of the ground movements has been highlighted.
