Staff Profile

Chen Yu

Research Associate


I am a Research Associate currently in the School of Engineering at Newcastle University. I major in the research of monitoring and interpreting geo-hazards such as earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, and ground subsidence using a variety of Earth Observations (EO).


Research interest:

1. InSAR.

2. Optical remote sensing.

3. Network RTK algorithm development.

4. Ocean tide loading effects on InSAR.

5. Earthquake modelling.

6. Landslide detection and modelling.




  • PhD in Satellite geodesy and remote sensing, School of Engineering, Newcastle University, UK.
  • MSc in Geodesy, School of Geodesy and Geomatics, Wuhan University, China.
  • BSc in Geographic Information System, School of Geography and Planning, Sun Yat-sen University, China.

Chen majors in the research of Monitoring Earthquakes, Landslides and their interactions using Earth Observations (EO). He has developed varies Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) atmospheric correction models which enable the monitoring and modelling of geohazards with small amplitude ground deformation and/or great spatial-temporal data coverage. One of the most important outcomes has been the Generic Atmospheric Correction Online Service for InSAR (GACOS,, which delivers InSAR atmospheric correction maps in a convenient way freely and publicly.
