Since the early nineties SAR has been developed to provide contributions to several areas of the environmental risk monitoring. With the launch of X-Band Very High Resolution sensors, a significant advance in the extension of the applications to the monitoring of deformation affecting the built environment exposed to hazards has been achieved. In this work we summarize the outcomes of the studies resulting from the application of our interferometric chain developed for the processing of data acquired by the COSMO-SkyMed constellation. Applications regard geophysical processes of seismic and volcanic genesis, as well as areas affected by landslides and cultural heritage.
