This paper presents an overview on recent developments in InSAR applications, with emphasis on the use of satellite-borne sensors for applications in geoscience, topographic mapping, natural hazard monitoring and environmental research. InSAR measurement principles are briefly introduced. Recent results on the use of repeat-pass interferometry for mapping seismic and volcanic deformation, monitoring landslides and subsidence, and mapping glacier motion are described. Other InSAR applications introduced in the paper are: topographic mapping, retrieval of biogeophysical parameters on land surfaces, and measurements of water currents. Examples of interferometric products are shown for satellite-borne SAR systems operating at X-band, C-band and L-band radar frequencies. An outlook is provided on upcoming SAR systems which will spur further advances in InSAR techniques and applications
