Detailed rockslide mapping in northern Norway with small baseline and persistent scatterer interferometric SAR time series methods

Rockslides have a high socioeconomic and environmental importance in many countries. Norway is particularly susceptible to large rockslides due to its many fjords and steep mountains. One of the most dangerous hazards related with rock slope failures are tsunamis that can lead to large loss of life. It is therefore very important to systematically identify potential unstable rock slopes. Traditional landslide monitoring techniques are expensive and time consuming.

Comparison between automated and manual mapping of typhoon triggered landslides from SPOT-5 imagery

Two large tropical cyclones struck Taiwan in the summer of 2004 and landslides triggered by these events caused not only casualties and housing damage but also produced large volumes of sediment that entered rivers and reservoirs. For reservoir and watershed management it is important to quickly identify the location and areal extent of new landslides for coordinating

Geospatial technology in landslide mitigation - A case study in Nilgiris District

Landslides constitute one of the major natural catastrophes, which account for considerable loss of life and damage to communication routes, human settlements, agricultural and forestland. Most of the terrain in mountainous areas have been subjected to slope failures under the influence of variety of terrain factors and figured by events such as extreme rainfall or earthquake. In India, landslides are occurring frequently in Himalayan region in North and Western Ghats in South.
