Radar interferometry (InSAR, interferometric synthetic aperture radar) is routinely used to measure surface deformation prior to, during, and after volcanic events, although not in a monitoring capacity. The improved data availability of some current satellite missions presents us with the opportunity to do just that. We present here a fast and flexible algorithm to estimate coherence and select points on an interferogram-by-interferogram basis, which overcomes limitations of the conventional boxcar ensemble method in areas of marginal coherence. Time series methods, which offer an alternative way to select coherent points, are typically slow, and do not allow f...
