Abstract

In recent years, it has occurred in different regions of Iran, especially the plains, and in most regions has caused this phenomenon to become a major regional and country crisis. Kerman desert province is no exception to this rule and most of its plains and industrial areas have suffered from this phenomenon and have high subsidence rates. The present study investigated the occurrence of this phenomenon using radar interferometry technique and Sentinel 1 satellite images in the period of 2019 and 2020 in Bardsir plain of Kerman province. To investigate the rate of subsidence in the region, initial processing was performed in remote sensing software and GIS and two Goldstein and Adaptive filters were used to evaluate the obtained results. The results show that the Goldstein filter has subsidence values up to 10 cm in certain ranges and the uplift values up to about 6.5 cm and the Adaptive filter have given the subsidence values up to 9 cm in some ranges and the uplift values up to about 5.6 cm. The reason for the difference in values in the results of these two filters is that in the Goldstein filter, the amount of coherence increases by manipulating the phases, so the image is brighter, thus the situation in this filter improves. But this is not the case with the Adaptive filter, and the phases are not manipulated, and in some areas, the amount of blurriness is higher in different parts of the image.
