Keywords: Sentinel-1, SBAS-InSAR, land subsidence, Handan
Abstract. The Sentinel-1 data is currently the latest free SAR data and is well suited for land subsidence monitoring based on InSAR technology due to its 6-day revisit cycle. In this paper, the urban area and surrounding areas of Handan City are used as research areas, and 29 scences of S1A data (December 2017 – December 2018) was used for time series SBAS processing. The results shows that the surface cumulative deformation ranged from -42 to 30 mm in most regions of Handan City. The maximum settlement is 69 mm, which is near the Hankuang Group Julong Company. The areas where the settlement is obvious include Wu'an City, Daishan Village, Dashe Town, Zhangxibao Town, Baijia Street, Dongxingtai Village, Gaonan Village and Hankuang Group Julong Company. Slightly elevated in the southeast of Handan City.
