Previous studies have shown the Escalante Valley, Utah, is subsiding due to groundwater withdrawal. The magnitude and spatial pattern of this cm/yr.-scale subsidence is mapped with satellite data from a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) using interferometric SAR (InSAR) processing techniques. A relatively new processing approach that measures individual pixel displacements for selected persistent scatterers (PSInSAR) was tested in the agricultural setting of the Escalante Valley.

The objectives of this study were to 1) test the suitability of a relatively new application of interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) and 2) use traditional InSAR to measure land surface subsidence in the Escalante Valley, Utah. This 25-page report discusses the results of the study.
