This paper shows that in a repeat-pass dataset of SAR images a long-term coherent component, when present, can be recovered by coherent temporal filtering of the SAR images and can successively form interferograms with higher SNR. The validity of the idea is confirmed through simulations and one example with real TerraSAR-X data. The theoretical necessity of using long-term interferograms is also discussed and linked to autoregressive processes, starting from the observation that the optimal weighting is given by the inverse of the covariance matrix.
