Abstract

The potential of space-borne earth observation techniques to monitor possible undeclared activities on a nuclear waste repository site was surveyed. The highest potential of earth observation is in the detection of undeclared construction of buildings and roads as well as detection of undeclared quarrying. Real-time applications such as continuous traffic monitoring are not feasible in earth observation applications that require high spatial accuracy. The monitoring system consists of baseline data acquisition that should be donebefore excavation activities start, of routine monitoring, and of an optional alarm survey. Space-borne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is suggested as the principal instrument tocollect the monitoring data because of its all-weather capability.
