Global Positioning System Survey data for 2015, and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar Data for 1995-2017, Coachella Valley, Riverside County, California

Metadata Updated: October 26, 2023

GPS data collection: GPS measurements were taken at 24 geodetic monuments during September 27-October 2, 2015. The GPS surveys generally followed established guidelines (Zilkoski and others, 1997), except that the data were processed with single-baseline, rather than multi-baseline, software. GPS measurements were recorded at the monuments on at least 2 different days during 1-hour observation periods. Of the 24 geodetic monuments, 7 were network control stations—DUNE, COCH, DEEP, CAHU, PAIN, C101, and G70; GPS measurements were recorded at these seven stations on 3 additional days during 6.5-hour (or longer) observation periods. InSAR data collection: The data set consists of twenty-four individual interferograms and two stacked interferograms. Of the twenty-four individual interferograms, two interferograms were processed from synthetic aperture radar data acquired by the German Aerospace Center’s (DLR) TerraSAR-X satellite and twenty-two interferograms were processed from synthetic aperture radar data acquired by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Sentinel-1A satellite. The two stacked interferograms were created by summing multiple individual interferograms. Radar data used to produce the interferograms shown in this report were obtained from the European Space Agency through their free and open data policy and the German Aerospace Center through research proposal GEO1609 for purposes of research and development.
