In the recent years radar interferometry (InSAR) has become an important tool in various studies. It can be used to produce accurate digital elevation models and observe small surface displacements. Differential interferometry (DInSAR) can detect movements in the radar look direction that are in the order of wavelength used, i.e. less than one centimetre with ERS data. In the presented study DInSAR has been used to observe surface movements in western Slovenia. Three ERS radar images have been supplemented with an external digital elevation model to produce three differential interferograms that temporally covered the Poso~je earthquake, which happened on April 12, 1998. For the area around Bovec a land subsidence of approximately 0.5 cm has been observed; the largest movements detected exceeded 2 cm. DInSAR has been compared to the permanent scatterers interferometry (PSInSAR). Both methods are complementary and both have individual advantages and disadvantages.
