Relief is a major element for portraying a landscape, while even slight changes in its shape are frequently identified as a result of deformation. Both are strictly related to the morphological setting of a given area that is often represented as a raster data set, the Digital Elevation Model (DEM). In particular, morpho-units can be discriminated by applying classification methods to topographical attributes, usually derived by processing DEMs, while deformation rates are pinpointed by elaborating Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data by means of Interferometric techniques. The main goal of this work is to relate the morphological information gathered by classifying terrain units of Cephalonia Island (Greece), on the basis of a DEM, with the observed deformation resulting from SAR interferometry, not disregarding the geo-structural setting of the area.
