InSAR Detection of Localized Subsidence Induced by Sinkhole Activity in Suburban West-Central Florida

Sinkhole activity in west-central Florida is a major hazard for people and property. Increasing frequency of sinkhole collapse is often related to an accelerated use of groundwater and land resources. In this work, we use radar interferometry acquired over a selected region in Hernando County in west-central Florida to observe small localized deformation possibly caused by sinkhole activity. The data used for the study consist of acquisitions from one TerraSAR-X frame covering a time span of approximately 1.7 years with spatial resolution of 0.25 by 0.60 m. We applied the Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) technique using the Stanford Method for Persistent Scatterers (StaMPS). Results reveal several areas of localized subsidence at rates ranging from inline-formula−3.7 to inline-formula−4.9 mm yrinline-formula−1. Ground truthing and background verification of the subsiding locations confirmed the relationship of the subsidence with sinkhole presence.
