As one of the most water-stressed cities in the world, Beijing has been suffering from land subsidence since 1935 due to over-exploitation of groundwater. Based on detailed analyses of Envisat ASAR images acquired between 2003 and 2010 and TerraSAR-X images from 2010 to 2011, this paper provides new insights into the spatio-temporal distribution characteristics and the key triggering and conditioning factors of land subsidence in Beijing. The maximum subsidence is observed in the eastern part of Beijing with a rate greater than 100 mm/year. The good agreement between InSAR and GPS results suggests that InSAR is a powerful tool for monitoring land subsidence. Interesting relationships in terms of land subsidence were found with groundwater level, active faults, accumulated soft soil thickness, aquifer types and the distances to pumping wells.
