Abstract: In this work, Multi Temporal Interferometry techniques (MTI) based on advanced synthetic aperture radar differential interferometry (A-DInSAR) have been investigated for the monitoring of deformation phenomena in slow kinematics. A-DInSAR methodologies include both Coherence-based type, as well as Small Baseline Subset (SBAS) that Permanent Scatterers (PS). These techniques are capable to provide wide-area coverage and precise, spatially dense information on ground surface deformations. MTI techniques have been applied to the town of Stigliano (MT) in Basilicata Region (Southern Italy), where the social center building has been destroyed after the reactivation of a known landslide. A direct comparison of the results has been shown that PS and SBAS techniques are comparable in terms of obtained coherent areas and displacement patterns, with slightly different velocity values for individual points. In particular, PS furnished a range of velocity between −5/−25 mm/year, while for SBAS we found values around −5/−15 mm/year. Furthermore, on the crown of the landslide body, a Robotics Total Station measuring distance values on 24 points has been installed. The displacement values obtained are in agreement with the results of the MTI analysis, showing as these techniques could be a useful in the case of early-warning situations.
