SAR interferometry has proved to be a promising technique for a number of geoscientific applications by providing height information. The theoretical aspects are basically understood and the current research focuses on the potentials investigating the limitations of the technique. In order to reach an operational status, it is necessary to have a good quality assessment of the results. One possible way to assess the accuracy and reliability of SAR interferometric products is the development of an error propagation model. This can provide information about the sensitivity of each single input parameter or processing step as well as a quantitative quality measure for the output, which is independent from additional information introduced as reference data. The development and implementation of this error propagation model is addressed in this paper.
