The S1 center frequency is 5405MHz (see abstracted metadata), you can easily calculate the wavelength from this as explained above
I obtained 0.055 meter but i want to see it in the article or conference paper to give reference.
Hereâs a reference for the 5.405GHz Centre frequency:
Sorry for rising up this post, but I checked with both formulas above. The displacement is fine, but with the vertical one calculated with formula provided (unwrapped phase * wavelength) / (4 * PI * rad(cos(incidence angle)) )the result is not as expected (see below). The incidence angle is taken from the tiepoint grid band incident_angle.
Any suggestions?
24h latter  resolved using the average of the LIA from incident_angle band .
In SNAP after clicking menu item âradar>interferometric>unwrapping>snaphuImportâ there will be a box with 4 tabs âreadâ, âread unwrapped phaseâ, snaphuImportâ and âwriteâ. But in GraphBuilderâs window after adding the same item as an icon there are only 2 tabs, âreadâ and âsnaphuImportâ. I can add a âwriteâ tab but can not find the item corresponding to âread unwrapped phaseâ tab. Is it available in SNAP?
the solution with the graph builder is obsolete. If was from a time when the import wasnât as far developed.
You can just use âSnaphu Importâ
hi mengdahl, i am new here,sorry to interrupt, i want to know where i can find the local incidence angle? thanks before
if your data was processed correctly, you find it under tiepointgrids (can also be used in the band maths):

hi Abraun, we meet again, thanks! fyi my LOS DinSAR show in meter units, how if i want to change in cm units?
calculate in meters and then multiply with 100
ohhaha, well forget for the easiest step tbh i used the âphase to displacementâ at my first try, the processing parameters window didnât show anything, is there any alternative?
yes, you can apply this formula manually in the band maths:
wait, iâm sorry, i still confused between LOS and vertical displacement formula. to calculate LOS in band math is (Unw_Phase * wavelength in mm) / (4 * PI * cos(rad(incident_angle))) ? if iâm not wrong, that is vertical displacement formula right?
you are right, the cosine of the incidence angle is the LOS to vertical displacement factor.
so the LOS formula is unwrapped phase * wavelength/ 4*PI ? if the wavelength in cm, and then i want to calculate LOS to vertical displacement, should i use cm unit too?
Iâm not sure, to be honest.
maybe i should do trial and error. well, thanks for your time to answer my questions, have a good day!
Since you say ânot sureâ, can you find an expert to describe the equation? Because (1) In optics the incident angle of a light line to a surface is between the âline of sight( LOS )â direction and the normal direction of the surface. If this is the same definition for the radio wave of InSAR, the âcosâ term in the equation zealandia_sarah shows above should be in the numerator to convert the LOSD to vertical displacement. (2) In my image processing by SNAP the result of vertical displacement looks too large( ~30cm ) on a region where there is no big geological event in the 12 days interval( S1A images ). Can you have some comments on this?
hello LiniC,

Incidence angle is the angle defined by the incident radar beam and the vertical (normal) to the intercepting surface as shown below.

In terms of vertical displacement, as it is given by Z.Lu and D.Dzurisin, 2014 is as follows:
Letâs say we have two pixels, m and n which corresponds to two targets on the ground, the SAR phase for these points can be defined as follows:
phase_m = (4pi/wavelength)*rm and phase_n = (4pi/wavelength)*rn (where rn and rm are the distance between the satellite and the points on the ground.)
A second SAR image is acquired for the same area (letâs assume that the target point n has moved up by an amount of h). Now the phase for the point nâ which has moved can be expressed as follows:
phase_nâ = (4pi/wavelength)(rn  hcos*theta) (where h is the vertical displacement of target n)
Hence, we form the interferogram by subtracting the phases of the two SAR images and the vertical displacement between the two points can be expressed as follows:
phase_nâ = (4pi / wavelength)(hcos*theta)
So, in order to find the vertical displacement, we need to get the cos
of the incidence angle
