Vertical land motion rates for the years 2007 to 2020 for the U.S. Atlantic coast

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This dataset contains rates of land subsidence and uplift 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 for the U.S. Atlantic coast except for the states of North and South Carolina. The data consist of vertical land motion (VLM) rates and the 1-sigma error in land motion rates and are available as csv files. Similar vertical land motion rates for North Carolina and South Carolina are available from Barnard and others, 2023, at
