Applying Atmospheric Corrections to the Deformation Behavior of Persistently Restless Telica Volcano, Nicaragua, during Unrest in 2015

by Rebecca Bussard
Persistently restless volcanoes experience frequent eruptions with Volcanic Explosivity Index of 2 or lower. Telica Volcano in Western Nicaragua experienced major unrest beginning in May 2015 through December 2015. We analyze a dataset consisting of 63 images of Telica during 2015 from the COSMO-SkyMED satellite, characterized by a spatial resolution of ~1 m. A multi-temporal analysis of this SAR dataset should provide more insight into the eruptive patterns of Telica and other persistently restless volcanoes.
