Abstract

This study demonstrates the interest of using a Principal Component Analysis-based Inversion Method (PCAIM) to analyze jointly InSAR and ground-based geodetic time series of crustal deformation. A major advantage of this approach is that the InSAR tropospheric biases are naturally filtered out provided they do not introduce correlated or high amplitude noise in the input times series. This approach yields source models which are well-constrained both in time and space due to the temporal resolution of the ground-based geodetic data and the spatial resolution of the InSAR data. The technique is computationally inexpensive allowing for the inversion of large datasets. To demonstrate the performance of this approach, we apply it to the 1997-98 magmatic inflation event in the Long Valley Caldera, California.
