Development of Earth observation SAR-based tools to improve surveys required for humanitarian demining. Analysis and modelling of long term mechanisms and processes related to potential indicators of contaminated areas through exploitation of time series of ERS and ENVISAT archives will be performed and validated in Croatia. The idea is to differentiate human-induced effects from natural ones by exploiting the combination of the amplitude and phase changes of the signal. The same tools could be used for food security applications. The project could serve as a feasibility study for using stacks of free Sentinel-1 images.
