<p>This paper presents a case of a lignite mine in Northern Greece with excavated slopes exceeding 100-120m in depth in which substantial movement is occurring, with an average rate 10-20mm/day. The Mavropigi mine is very important for the power supply of ...

<p>The potential of ERS InSAR for detecting slope motion in a periglacial mountain environment has been tested in the western part of the Swiss Alps. An inventory has been built from the analysis of the InSAR data. It contains a large number of areas that ...

<p>In recent years Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) has been introduced as a new system for landslie monitoring. Untill now no standards have been defined, how to install a TDR system or how to process the received data, especially when multiple TDR measureing ...
