Abstract Volcanic phenomena are currently monitored by the detection of physical and chemical observations. Generally, the ground deformation field is the most relevant shallow expression of the geometric and physical parameters variations in the magmatic reservoir. In this study, we propose a novel method for the direct estimation of the geometric parameters of sources responsible for volcanic ground deformation detected via the DInSAR technique. Starting with the biharmonic properties of the deformation field, we define an approach based on the Multiridge and ScalFun methods to achieve relevant information about both the positions and shapes of active sources,...
