Vertical land motion rates for the years 2007 to 2020 for the North and South Carolina coasts

Metadata Updated: April 7, 2024

Rates of land subsidence and uplift for the North and South Carolina coasts are derived from Sentinel-1A/B (2015-2020) and ALOS (2007-2011) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites, at approximately 50-75 m resolution and mm-level precision. The data consist of vertical land motion (VLM) rates and the 1-sigma error in land motion rates and are available as csv files.
