Abstract
The aim of the research presented here is to point out the possibility of comparison and integration of the information derived from optical and SAR sensors for geotectonic studies. The study area, known as Fossa Bradanica, is located in Southern Italy and is a tectonic depression directed NW-SE, that represents the Apennine foredeep. It is characterized by a thick sequence consisting of clay, sand, and conglomerate strata. Optical and microwave images collected during three different seasons (spring, summer and winter) have been selected. Only the winter images have been interpreted because the winter Landsat-TM image proved to be more proper in tectonic studies, due to the low sun elevation enhancing the morphological characteristics of the area. According to this choice, winter ERS-1 images registered during both ascending and descending orbits have been analyzed. The identification and analysis of tectonic lineaments have been performed separately on the different images, manually detecting the lineaments by photointerpretation. The comparison of results points out that the synergistic use of the two sensors could offer an effective improvement in the knowledge of geological and structural data. 15
