The objective of this study is to use spaceborne Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) data to detect surface deformation signals associated with oil and gas production, high-rate wastewater injection, and induced seismic events in West Texas. These measurements can then be used by CISR to constrain subsurface hydrologic models and quantify the connections between injection-related stress perturbation and induced seismicity.
