This is a general question relating to the new Sentinel-1 data. I'm interested in the potential for using this data to create high resolution DEMs in GIS (I use QGIS), to investigate archaeological sites and landscapes and model their change.
The European Space Agency Copernicus program satellite Sentinel-1a has recently been commissioned, with data just beginning to become available on the ESA Data hub website (https://scihub.esa.int/). This data can be viewed and processed using specially prepared software called Sentinel-1 Toolbox (https://earth.esa.int/web/sentinel-tbx/sentinel-1-toolbox). The radar data will allow land surface observations and changes in land surfaces to be modelled using 'synthetic aperture radar interferometry', with most examples given so far detailing the impact of earthquakes or other large-scale natural landscape changes (https://earth.esa.int/web/sentinel/thematic-content/-/article/radar-vision-maps-napa-valley-earthquake). After searching the internet I have found that, other than the ESA's own website, there appears to be little information on the practical use of this new data.
Is there any literature on how to produce high-resolution DEMs from this new Sentinel-1 data?
