Paper Abstract

The study of plate tectonic motion is important to generate theoretical models of the structure and dynamics of the Earth. In turn, understanding tectonic motion provides insight to develop sophisticated models that can be used for earthquake early warning systems and for nuclear forensics. Tectonic geodesy uses the position of a network of points on the surface of earth to determine the motion of tectonic plates and the deformation of the earths crust. GPS and interferometric synthetic aperture radar are commonly used techniques used in tectonic geodesy. In this paper we will describe the feasibility of interferometric synthetic aperture quantum radar and its theoretical performance for tectonic geodesy.
