Short summary
Differential subsidence produces damage to infrastructure and geological media. However, detecting and mapping differential subsidence at a regional scale using satellite date becomes challenging when considering the large amount of displacement products that can be produced. Here we show some examples of our work with products at different scale and focused on different aspects of differential subsidence.
