This submission contains tarred pair directories for interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) data covering Coso Geothermal Field in California, USA.
Data included within this submission are the following:
> ENVI_T349_GDR.tgz: Tarred directory containing 81 Envisat track 349 tarred, pair subdirectories spanning from 2003-Nov-14 to 2010-Sep-03. This subset of pairs is derived by using a minimum spanning tree algorithm with orbital separation (i.e., perpendicular baseline) as the weighting criterion.
> S1A_T64_GDR.tgz: Tarred directory containing 10 Sentinel-1A track 64 tarred, pair subdirectories spanning from 2014-Nov-03 to 2016-Apr-26.
> coso_dem_utm.grd: digital elevation model (DEM) with 1 arc-second posting from the Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (Farr et al., 2007) used in the creation of the interferograms.

Explanation of pair subdirectories:
Pairs are formed using the InSAR processing software GMT5SAR (Sandwell et al., 2011).
Pair subdirectories are named by starting and ending epochs in YYYYMMDD_YYYYMMDD format.
Each tarred pair directory contains GRD files for phase data (radians), unwrapped range change (drhomaskd, in m), and unwrapped range change rate (drange, in m/yr). The data are given in both latitude/longitude and Universal Transverse Mercator (Zone 11N).
Raw Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from the Envisat satellite mission operated by the European Space Agency (ESA) are copyrighted by ESA and were provided through the WInSAR consortium at the UNAVCO facility.
Raw Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from the Sentinel-1A satellite mission operated by ESA were available free of charge through the Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) at the Alaska Satellite Facility (ASF) and through the Sentinels Scientific Data Hub.
