AbstractGeodetical monitoring of the Campi Flegrei caldera (Naples, Italy), has been historically carried out by ground networks giving an information related only to a certain number of measuring points; this limitation can be greatly relieved by exploiting the space-borne DInSAR which allows to extract the geodetic information on wide areas, with a good time coverage in comparison with the mean repetition time of the campaign measurements. In this work we will show recent results on Campi Flegrei, obtained by using all the ENVISAT ASAR available data from both ascending and descending orbits. The processed data revealed that the uplift phase of Campi Flegrei, which became very clear in summer 2005 with an average velocity of about 2.8 mm/year, has definitely reduced the uplift velocity since spring 2007. This conclusion is consistent with independent deformation measurements carried out by the Vesuvius Observatory (INGV-OV). Differences, in terms of limits and potentialities of DInSAR with respect to classical geodetic techniques and vice-versa and the way they can be compared/integrated, is still a very interesting matter of debate suggesting, as an optimal solution for monitoring purposes in active volcanic areas, the integration of all the available techniques.
