This dataset is a single file (gulf_vlm.csv), which contains the vertical land motion (VLM) and standard deviation in cm/year for the United States Gulf Coast.

The VLM dataset was obtained between 2007 to 2020 using interferometric analysis of space-borne synthetic aperture radar images from two different satellites (Sentinel-1 and Advanced Land Observing Satellite) in concert with global navigation satellite system measurements. The satellite data was processed using the WabInSAR algorithm ( software?authuser=0).

Version 2 of this dataset has been created to remove NaN values because the original dataset extended too far inland.
