2D InSAR - Vertical and Horizontal Motion

With a single satellite image captured from one side of the area of interest, the amount of motion in the direction of the satellite (line of sight or LOS) can be measured.


By obtaining two measurements, one from the left and one from the right, the vertical motion and horizontal motion can be calculated and presented as separate movement maps across the area of interest. This can be useful for fractured regions where measurement of shear and normal movement along fault lines is desired.
