Although referring to earthquakes and not subsidence, the same abbreviations are used: 

Peak ground acceleration - Wikipedia

During an earthquake, ground acceleration is measured in three directions: vertically (V or UD, for up-down) and two perpendicular horizontal directions (H1 and H2), often north–south (NS) and east–west (EW).

Sigma is the uncertainty around the value.
