Line-of-sight Displacement across Los Angeles as shown in Fig 14b of Lee and Shirzaei (2023) Remote Sensing of Environment. Volume 286, 113447

The SAR data sets spanning from 26 February 2016 to 29 August 2022 include 247 images in descending orbits of the Sentinel-1 C-band satellite. The data set is processed using WabInSAR algorithm. See citations below for details.
