Ecuadorian Volcanoes Supersite

One of the objectives of this event Supersite is to obtain ground deformation from InSAR data.
The area of interest is on the Equator (O degrees) and to 1.5 degrees S and near the 78 th parallel (W) in South America. INSAR images should be collected for two volcanoes, Tungurahua (number 79 above) and Cotopaxi (number 62), both large complex stratocones which have shown deformation patterns from ground-based methods, but only more detailed modeling can be done on magma migration if there is a more complete coverage by INSAR of both volcanoes.
