|Region:||Middle East and Indian Ocean|
|Duration of observation:||2003 to 2010|
|Inferred cause of deformation:||Uncertain|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Shirzaei et al. (2012) present Envisat radar InSAR images from 2003 through 2010 at all Iranian volcanoes, using multitemporal interferometric analysis.
The authors present evidence of time-dependent surface displacements at both Sabalan and Sahand volcanoes. The sources of the observed deformation is subject of ongoing research and no further detail is presented.
