Abstract. A new solution algorithm that combined D-InSAR and probability integral method was proposed to generate the three dimensional deformation in mining area. The details are as follows: according to the geological and mining data, the control points set should be established, which contains correct phase unwrapping points in subsidence basin edge generated by D-InSAR and several GPS points; Using the modulus method to calculate the optimum parameters of probability integral prediction; Finally, generate the three dimensional deformation of mining work face by the parameters. Using this method, the land subsidence with big deformation gradients in mining area were correctly generated by example TerraSAR-X images. The results of the example show that this method can generate the correct mining subsidence basin with a few surface observations, and it is much better than the results of D-InSAR.
