Terrafirma products

Within the GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) Service Element (GSE) programme of the European Space Agency, the Terrafirma project is delivering satellite EO based Geohazard Land Motion Services. Its aim is to provide essential support in the process of risk assessment and mitigation by using the latest technology to measure terrain motion from satellite radar data. The ESA GMES project provides this support to a wide range of entities including: civil protection agencies, disaster management organisations and costal, rail and motorway authorities.

Using data acquired 800km above the Earth’s surface which is interpreted and analysed by expert national geoscience organisations, the project provides a pan-European ground motion hazard information service in each of the 27 states.

The first Stage (2003-2006) concentrated on the consolidation of a standardised and qualified terrain motion service.

In Stage 2 (2006-2009), the project focused on scaling up the service by delivering data to each of the 27 EU member states, and running a highly successful service validation, which established for the first time, a quantification of the precision and accuracy of the InSAR derived measurement services provided by the team.

The third stage of Terrafirma (2009-2013) focused on several thematic lines for terrain motion analysis: Tectonics, Coastal Lowland Subsidence and Flood Defence, Hydrogeology (ground water issues, landslides and inactive mines) and Wide Area Mapping service.

Within the consolidation of the GSE programme concerning land motion geohazard services, Stage 4 (2014) is devoted to secure the long-term on-line availability of Terrafirma products via the OneGeology-Europe Portal and to adapt the WAP processor to make it compatible with new data source. This represents a major step forward in being able to deliver terrain motion maps over wide areas using the Sentinel-1 satellites.
