The PS stands for “permanent scatterer”, and it is the use of these (along with the volume of scenes employed) that distinguishes the method from more familiar InSAR techniques. A permanent scatterer is any persistently reflective pre-existing ground feature, such as building roofs, metallic structures, and even large boulders. The use of these features offers the possibility of measurements...
