Response to Landslide Emergencies

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Remotely sensed data and technologies are critical for a science-driven emergency response to landslide disasters. Topography derived from lidar, Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR) , optical imagery, and GPS can provide fundamental information to forecast and respond to landslide activity. High-resolution topography collected before and after landslide movement can be differenced to obtain estimates of deposit thickness.
