Abstract
The need of reliable monitoring of old embankment dams is rapidly increasing since a large number of these structures are still equipped with old monitoring devices, usually installed some decades ago, which are generally capable to provide only localized information on specific areas of the embankment. This work discusses the use of Ground-Based Synthetic Aperture Radar (GBSAR) interferometry technique to observe and control the structural behavior of earthfill or rockfill embankments for dam impoundments. This non-invasive technique provides displacements patterns measured with sub-millimeter precision. Monitoring strategies of earthfill dam embankment in Southern Italy are presented.
