Aims & Objectives

Using a new, transformative technique of InSAR will allow near continuous coverage across all land surfaces. to realise the full potential of this new technique the validity of results over peatland needs to be demonstrated. Data will be collected from two sites in Scotland’s flow country to address the following questions:

  • Is ground motion measured by InSAR a true indicator of the ground motion?
  • Does InSAR give and indication of the general condition of the peat?

David Large’s research career is in the Earth Sciences and is characterised by its diversity specifically ore deposits, organic geochemistry, palaeoenvironment, reactive transport modelling, inorganic geochemistry and petrology. Currently his focus is on understanding the evolution of the peatland carbon reservoir through geological time. You can read more about David here
