Abstract

Ground-based synthetic aperture radar (GB-SAR) has already been recognized as a powerful tool, complementary or alternative to spaceborne SAR interferometry, for terrain deformation monitoring, and building deformation monitoring. In this paper, the application of GB-SAR interferometry for subgrade subsidence monitoring is analyzed. The experiment carried out in China in 2018 was aimed at finding potential subgrade subsidence risks of a railway. Interferometric data were collected through a GB-SAR system operating at Ku-band. A slight subgrade subsidence is found, and the relationship between periodicity of displacement and temperature is discussed. Results show that the GB-SAR can be attractive and effective in the monitoring of subgrade subsidence.
