Combining In-situ and Remote Sensing-Based Monitoring Methods to Improve the Efficiency and Accuracy of Landslide Monitoring Activities

Installing, maintaining, and collecting data from in-situ landslide monitoring instruments can be environmentally sensitive, expensive, time consuming, and often does not provide a complete picture of the extent or magnitude of movement. In-situ instrumentation, however, is important for measuring phenomena that cannot be measured via other methods such as pore-water pressure and the variability of movement at depth. Because of their value, cost, and limited spatial data, it is important to understand how in-situ instruments can be combined with more cost-effective and timely remote sensing methods to improve the efficiency and accuracy of landslide monitoring. The goal of this project is to assess the feasibility and benefits of using remote sensing data to supplement data from in-situ monitoring equipment to monitor landslide movement.
