The method of stochastic simulation is proposed to model the atmospheric effect on InSAR measurements based on sample data. Test results show that 37.44% reduction in the standard devisation of the atmospheric errors can be achieved with the method of stochastic simulation, compared to 25.69% with the method of Kriging interpolator. The relative improvement of the former over the latter amounts to 45.72%. The results suggest that the method of stochastic simulation is more advantageous over the traditional interpolators such as the Kriging method in modeling the atmospheric effects on InSAR measurements.
