Vertical Land Motion across Mexico City as shown in Fig 2C of Khorrami et al (2023) Geophysical Research Letters. The SAR dataset includes 599 C-band Sentinel-1 SAR images with a 12-day revisit time, 250 km swath, 5 m x 20 m spatial resolution, and multi-looking factors of 32 (range) by 6 (azimuth), including 175 scenes from ascending track path #78, 142 scenes from descending track path #41, and 282 scenes from descending track path #143, comprising 142 and 140 scenes from frames #526 and #531, respectively. The dataset is processed using the WabInSAR algorithm (Shirzaei, 2013). More details on the README file downloadable with the data.
