Even if land deformation in Sahel-Doukkala may not directly threaten human life, it could lead to serious economic losses. Therefore, the monitoring of this deformation becomes a priority. In this study, PS-InSAR technique was applied in order to extract information regarding land deformation. This method was successful in detecting a considerable amount of PS targets from which the land deformation was estimated. The deformation rate was between -2.4 mm/year and 1.9 mm/year showing an alternation between uplift and subsidence. The origin of this deformation is suggested to be related to tectonic and climatological origins.
