Synthetic aperture radar interferometry has been proposed as a potential technique for digital elevation model (DEM) generation, topographic mapping, and surface motion detection especially in the inaccessible areas. Grove Mountains Area locates to the southwest of Princess Elizabeth Land, inland areas of east Antarctica. The topographical map of the core area (11 x 10 KM2) was printed after the field surveying with GPS and total station was finished under the atrocious weather conditions during the 16th CHINARE (Chinese National Antarctic Research Expedition) 1999/2000. This paper will present an experimental investigation of the ERS-1/2 SAR tandem data in 1996 on DEM generation of the Grove Mountains Core Area, analyze the data processing, and compare the DEM with the actual topographic form. It is confirmed that InSAR is a very useful technique to be utilized in Antarctica, and can be used to produce more products instead of dagnerous field surveying.
