© Authors 2019. In China, landslides are widely distributed in the mountainous areas of western regions. Especially after the Wenchuan Earthquake in 2008, a large number of landslides were triggered. This work focuses on the deformation monitoring of Xishancun Landslide based on multi-platform spaceborne radar remote sensing techniques. The spatio-temporal deformation characteristics of landslide could be retrieved from time series InSAR processing with joint use of Sentinel-1 and TerraSAR-X datasets. Eventually, the deformation and evolution histories are cultivated thoroughly to realize an effective and comprehensive monitoring and research of Xishancun Landslide. This work concludes that spaceborne radar remote sensing applications could demonstrate great potentials to identify the spatio-temporal characteristics and investigate the kinematics for hazardous landslides, especially combined with in situ measurements and other remote sensing observations.
